Japan hopes to built Space Elevator

Japanese always have plenty of idea to turn science fiction into reality!

From Arthur C. Clarke’s “Fountains of Paradise”, the Japan Space Elevator Association hopes that they will built a working space elevator. Anchored by carbon nanotube cables, the space elevator will reduce the cost of space operations up to 100 times less than launching space shuttles

Japan is hosting an international conference in November to draw up a timetable for the machine.
