Recently, a visitor to our International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC) conference was quoted as saying, You have a remarkable body of knowledge at www.isec.org. He was referring to the efforts of many scientists, engineers, and project/program professionals over the last 8 to 10 years. The leap in quality and currency shows that the Space Elevator is indeed twenty years beyond Dr. Edwards' breakthrough accomplishment saying it can be done. What is amazing are the conclusions from this body of knowledge: 1. Space Elevators are ready to initiate a developmental program 2. The tether material has been produced in the laboratory for the needed strength (150 GPa) and continuous length (1 meter per minute production) (note; not both capabilities at once - yet). This 2D material will be ready for the development team. 3. Space Elevators enable Missions off-planet with robust cargo movement as a complementary access to space with rockets. 4. Space Elevators are environmentally friendly in operations and enable Space Based Solar Power to eliminate hundreds of coal burning plants.
