Default Re: Space elevator -- one step closer...

So maybe they start from only 10 miles up. I just picked a couple of round numbers. If they build it, I'd bet $$ that some schmuck will want to jump off of it, and if one jumps from 10, somebody else will want to top it by going from 11, and so on, and so on. Maybe that'll help develop better space suits. Or body bags
