Stclaim Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 It has been suggested that a strong enough cable (carbon nanotubes?)should enable a space elevator to be built. However, surely, as the cable is lowered from space there would be a static build up so great that when it discharges close to the earth, it would be like an atom bomb? Also the cable would be like a super conductor and transfer earths heat into space. Another ice age anyone? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
