Space Elevator illustration

Japanese company, Obayashi Corporation plans to build elevator from earth to space in 2050, it will spanned 32.000 Km in to space.

Due to some factors, this elevator should be able to stand the earth rotation, so the corporation will build this elevator using cable made of carbon nanotubes as the connectors, this cable known to have maximum length about 96.000 Km.

This elevator can carry 30 person in one trip with top speed over 200 km/h, that means this elevator will arrive at the top in 8 days, i’m sure this is not an ordinary elevator *obvious!

Space trip using this elevator will cost $6 Billion to build and of course ticket cost will be sky high too.
