Here's some lovely maths on the subject: http://www.zadar.net/space-elevator/ "Under the term the cable length we consider the length where the cable is of the same thickness on the both ends. Consequently, the cable length is 143 800 km (although it can be in reality shorter or longer)." [/quote]

I remember reading Arthur C. Clarke's book "Fountains of Paradise" ages ago and figuring we'd have space elevators soon, but 25+ years later they still haven't figured it out?
Have they already put them into operation and hid their existence?
