Rare Jerome Pearson Video Speaking on the Space Elevator Concept
While Sir Arthur C. Clarke popularized the concept of the Space Elevator, it was Jerome Pearson and Yuri Artsutanov who did the original engineering, separately, on the concept originally put forward by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.
From the video introduction: This was the Keynote address delivered at the 2013 ISEC Space Elevator Conference (held at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington).
