Japanese scientists are going to carry out the first ever space elevator tests. Next week, an innovative device will go into orbit. Deliver it there H-IIB booster.
Theoretically, the space elevator will be able to deliver cargo into space without rockets. In fact, it represents a failing durable cable from the attachment on the earth’s surface to the orbital station itself. It, in turn, is located in a geostationary orbit. The cable is supported by centrifugal force.
The first prototype of the space elevator looks like a box with a motor. It moves along the cable stretched between the satellites.
The project creators, engineers of the Japanese company Obayashi, will use nanotube technology for the manufacture of a cable with a length of 96 thousand kilometers. Japanese ambitions can be envied: by 2050, they promise to create technology for delivering space tourists to orbit.
