    Title

    Modern Day Space Elevator Transformational Strengths and their Applications

    Description

    Modern Day Space Elevator design concepts are driven from many arenas. The customer is of course the first driver of design for the future; however, the transformational strengths determine the mission fulfillment. Once the 100,000 km tether is in place and the tether climbers start raising customer payloads, the remarkable characteristics will start to dominate the movement of mass for customers. This symposia will address how the following characteristics impact mission success for the customers: (a) Unmatched efficiencies with daily, routine, safe, and inexpensive delivery of logistics payloads, (b) Unmatched massive movement (initial operational capability (IOC) at 30,000 tonnes/yr with full operational capability (FOC) 170,000 tonnes/yr), (c) Unmatched velocity (starting at 7.76 km/sec at 100,000 altitude enables rapid transits to the Moon, Mars and beyond), (d), Ensures environmentally neutral operations as a green road to space, (e) Reduces rocket fairing design limitations, (f) Assembly at the top of the gravity well, and (g) Transforming the economic strengths of strategic investment, ubiquitous access, and uninterrupted exchange of resources. The Keynote Speech for this technical session will be entitled the "Jerome Pearson Memorial Lecture."
