    Title

    Space Elevator and Tethers

    Description

    The IAA study (3-24) entitled "Road to Space Elevator Era" is half way completed and will have results to present. In addition there are two architectures in the industry being refined with individual work, corporate commitment and association studies. These efforts have intermediate results to be presented at the IAC in Mexico. They are all looking fo engineering, operational, and funding steps towards an operational capability. This session will suggest strategies to implement the space elevator infrastructure. In addition, the session can accept the strategies to leverage this remarkable transportation capability of routine, inexpensive and safe access to our solar system. Space tethers are seen as a viable tool for space systems.
