[quote:Chapman_Baxter:MV8xMzAzNjg1XzIxMzU2MzU3XzY1NDg1NTJG] How could they possibly hide a thick cable that is hanging in the sky? 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]
