Shocking! Space elevator: the bet to go into space, what is it?

UNITED STATES – Recently, the possibility that not only spaceships are the means to go into space has been explored. The space elevator is one of the things that has been around for a long time; a space elevator that would take men and women to the International Space Station without the need for rockets, gas or other types of variants. “We are talking about super tall, super thin cables that carry people, satellites and other goods into high Earth orbit in elevator cabs the size of a train. If the scientists and engineers who have theorized about the elevator since […] 1960. […] it’s the most ingenious method ever to escape our sticky little gravity, which is responsible for at least 90 percent of the cost of accessing space, ”revealed Mashable. In this sense, the concept as such would be to generate a cable that is attached to an anchor on Earth so that it can carry a cabin to the International Space Station. In general terms, this would be a simple idea, although in practice it is an extremely important challenge. Of course, for the moment, there is no material capable of withstanding the tension which must be generated in said cable. Source: Pixabay. But a large number of experts assure that in a few years this could be a reality, so they see with good eyes that this progress can be made. For example, the professor of mechanical engineering at York University, George Zhu, clarified that “from a technical point of view, it is ready”. The general idea is to create a thread which allows to create a tension independent of the Earth’s orbit. “He only has minor technical adjustments, and there is no fundamental difficulty in doing so. […] Our idea is that when we join two lashings, one charge will move up and the other will charge down, so the forces will cancel each other out, ”Zhu added. Finally, he said that because the two ends are floating in space, the tension is extremely limited and there is no material that can support it.
