This is a video about space elevators. Yeah, I know, BORING.

But, hey. it has some valuable info about how to build stuff.

Well, if that isn't enough to interest you, how about the fact that the U.S. Government had some rather ambitious ideas about being the top dog in the world as far back as 1894!   

Ya see, the Washington Monument was the FIRST BUILDING in about five thousand years to be taller than the tallest of the Egyptian Pyramids (except a cathedral tower that collapsed shortly after they built it).

ENJOY and pass it on!



Upward Bound: Space Elevators
 

Isaac Arthur

Published on Mar 9, 2017

In this episode we examine the concept of a Space Elevator, a popular piece of developing technology designed to lift people and cargo into space at a fraction of normal launch costs. We will look at technology as well as many of the misconceptions about Space Elevators which have emerged.
