2009 Space Elevator Conference Synopsis

Indeed, some of the participants in the conference are there because the technologies needed for the space elevator have some down to earth potential and the space elevator itself is a secondary issue. And that's a good thing. Why? Because before a space elevator can leave the concept stage there's a lot of technical work that needs to be done in producing some of the core technologies. The most notable being Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs).
