    Title

    Space Elevator Design and Impact

    Description

    The Space Elevator is a visionary, far future concept that has received particular attention during the past two decades. It is a space access option that might, if successfully developed, enable extremely large-scale access to space at a low marginal cost. After a recent systems level design was published, IAA “Space Elevator Feasibility,” ideas have surfaced with numbers and estimates for the future. Some of these items are: $ 500/kg to GEO, 7 cargo loads per week, 14 metric tons per load. With this new level of detail, the questions begin to focus on successful design and what can be accomplished across the space community. So the question to be answered for this session is: “What Changes will a Successful Space Elevator Enable?” Some answers could include satellite designs, new businesses in space, new missions for governments and new opportunities to colonize.
