Michio Kaku Explains the Space Elevator for the Daily Show (video)

Recently The Daily Show contacted me as they wanted to do a piece on the Space Elevator after the last shuttle program ended. I put them in touch with Brad Edwards and Ben Shelef. The result is the following video with renowned physicist Michio Kaku where he discusses the space elevator and how it could economically lift cargo and humans into space by the end of the century.
