Can we have a space elevator thread?

I feel like we haven't had one in a while. Let's start with some recent news:

Bigelow calls on Trump to sharply increase NASA spending
HOUSTON — Space entrepreneur Robert Bigelow said Nov. 17 that he believes that the Trump administration should as much as double NASA’s budget in the coming years and make plans for a human return to the moon. Bigelow, the founder of commercial space habitat developer Bigelow Aerospace, argued in a speech at the Spacecom conference here Nov. 17 that such a dramatic, and arguably long-shot, increase in NASA funding was essential to the future of both the agency’s exploration efforts and business plans of commercial ventures, as well as affordable to the nation. The increase would also be used to support more ambitious space exploration efforts by NASA, such as lunar exploration. “The new White House needs to make a real commitment to this nation’s space future,” he said, specifically citing lunar bases and industrial activity. “The reason I’m focusing on the moon is because the business case for the moon is potentially substantial compared to the business case for Mars, and the financial requirements are of no comparison.”

UK 'space junk' project highlights threat to missions
The mass of "space junk" orbiting the Earth poses a serious threat to future exploration, a British scientist said on Friday at the launch of a project to raise awareness of the issue. "Tackling the problem of space debris is one of humankind's greatest environmental challenges, but is also perhaps the one that is the least known," said Hugh Lewis, head of astronautics research at the University of Southampton. He was supporting the launch of a creative project at London's Royal Astronomical Society by artists and scientists aiming to shed light on the 27,000 pieces of debris being tracked as they orbit the Earth. There are believed to be around 100 million pieces in total, but some are too small to chart. So-called "space junk" has been left in space during the many missions that have taken place since the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite, in 1957. The debris now poses a serious threat to future space exploration, scientists warn. "Every day, we use and rely on services provided by satellites without ever realising how vulnerable they are," said Lewis.

Chinese astronauts return to earth after longest mission
China's Shenzhou-11 spacecraft returned to earth Friday, bringing home two astronauts from the rising power's longest-ever orbital mission, in a milestone for its vaulting ambitions. China's state broadcaster CCTV showed the return capsule's separation from the Tiangong-2 space lab 393 kilometres (244 miles) above the earth, and its descent through the atmosphere to its landing on the grassland of Inner Mongolia in the country's north. After it landed, ground personnel rushed to plant two flapping red flags beside the capsule while observers applauded in China's mission control. CCTV later showed footage of Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong being carried out of the capsule and waving as staff wrapped them in blue blankets. The manned space programme's commander in chief Zhang Youxia announced that the mission was a "complete success". The men spent the 33-day mission orbiting the earth carrying out experiments including cultivating silkworms, growing lettuce, and testing brain activity.

What do guys think will be the next big frontier in space exploration? Some things we can discuss:
a manned mission to Mars
asteroid mining
exploring the moons of other planets, like Jupiter's Europa & Ganymede and Saturn's Titan & Enceladus
building bases on the Moon

The EM Drive will (in all likelihood) make space elevators obsolete even before they are developed. The 1.2 mN/kW from the Nasa experiment surely isn't the peak of the technology. An EM Drive capable of lifting itself on Earth is powerful enough to go all the way to space and to other planets.

If we could make a space elevator it would be incredibly dangerous and risky.

For instance if terrorists managed to 9/11 it and it came down it would wrap around the earth several times crushing anything and everything it lands on under superheated metal. Never mind how costly it would be to maintain.

Ethan Powell

Dampening oscillations would be an issue too, especially as the wave length of the construct is changing.

John Cox

em drives are now some magic antigrav bullshit or can produce literal tons of lift

EM drives are weak as fuck, even if you multiplied their power 1000x they still wouldn't be able to even lift themselves off the ground. Their only use is in interplanetary travel and (maybe) in satellite upkeep. Besides, the first step in creating a space elevator has always been putting a huge-ass counterweight in orbit and then lowering the cables to earth.

By its very nature the cable for a space elevator has to be incredibly light, so light that if the strands of the cable unwound and fell on top of you, you might not even notice. The cable wrapping around the earth would be a huge deal though, but it wouldn't cause as much destruction as you think it would.

space.com/34658-airplane-wing-actively-morphs-for-more-agile-efficient-flying.html

Even modern airplanes are a crude approximation of natural flight. The stiff wings and mechanical flaps and ailerons have nothing on birds that can flex, twist and flap their wings to adjust precisely to taking off, landing, flying fast or slow, turning, climbing or diving.

Now a collaboration between engineers at NASA and MIT has resulted in a shapeshifting wing that's as close as anyone has gotten to mimicking the natural agility of birds. The so-called Digital Morphing Wing could greatly improve an aircraft's fuel-efficiency, reduce its emissions and make it soar through the sky more smoothly and quietly than conventional planes.

The only proper tests done have been with the EM drive equivalent of a working model steam engine. Most tests have been with very low energy and basic cavity shapes. EMdrive.com seems to think that with superconducting resonance cavities quite a bit 1-3 tons of thrust can be extracted from a kilowatt of power.

Mind you that seems to be a private company's napkin math not hard data but that would make space elevators and rockets obsolete. You could get to orbit with a lawnmower engine

China successfully 3D printed its 1st pressure vessel cylinder prototype for a nuclear reactor

The prototype, an ACP100 pressure vessel cylinder, was 3D printed using a heavy metal additive manufacturing system developed by the China Nuclear Power Research Institute and Nanfang-AM. The 3D printed cylinder prototype marks an important step for the companies towards realizing a small pressure reactor made entirely from 3D printed parts.

I've never seen it mentioned in these threads, but an orbital ring could already be built from current materials and after being built would significantly cheapen getting mass into orbit.

Private rocket launch service SpaceX is requesting government approval to operate a massive satellite network that would provide high-speed, global internet coverage, according to newly filed documents with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.
Musk, has proposed an orbiting digital communications array that would eventually consist of 4,425 satellites, the documents filed on Tuesday show.
The proposed SpaceX network would begin with the launch of about 800 satellites to expand internet access in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the FCC filings showed.
"The system is designed to provide a wide range of broadband and communications services for residential, commercial, institutional, government and professional users worldwide,"
The satellites would be launched into orbits ranging from 714 miles to 823 miles (1,150-1,325 km) above Earth.
Each satellite, about the size of an average car, not including solar panels, would weigh 850 pounds (386 kg), SpaceX said.

"The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" its a good read (some degeneracy but overall premise is interesting and well written)

I am also in favor of mass drivers over space elevators. Space elevators always struck me as unreasonably vulnerable to attack and having one fail would have catastrophic consequences.

a long gradual acceleration space catapult that inclines up a slop that can impart escape velocity to a large mass would be much preferable in my view. The issue of energy remains but If we can crack fusion or start mining fissionable materials from asteroids the issue is solved. The G force issue for escape velocities of larger masses could be an issue but If we only use it for shipping unmanned materials and mass into orbit and use lighter cheaper craft to ferry humans we could make it work.

Another advantage to focusing on fissionable materials (nuclear power) and space is that we can take spent radioactive cores and launch them into the sun for disposal, solving the waste issue of nuclear power.

It's a win, win, win my my book.

safe, easily doable with current technology (would require a large investment in nuclear power but feasible) and provides a feedback loop of waste management and resource acquisition through space mining.

That is why you need a properly sloped mountain to give the entire setup an incline. Air resistance is a problem but if the package can be made aerodynamic it could theoretically achieve orbit with significant mass and minimal thrust.

Colton Thompson
Colton Thompson

If you push on something, that force moves through the medium at the same velocity at the speed of sound - if, for example, you push a steel beam that's ten miles in length, the other end of it won't move until ~2.64 seconds have elapsed. Since we're talking about a circular structure tens of thousands of miles in circumference, if something bumps into one side, that force will take several minutes to reach the other side, and it will resonate. It's the resonance that causes instability.

Adam Ross

The study contains virtually no discussion of why there is a “historical controversy” over this kind of analysis — namely, that it was debunked hundreds of years ago. Rather, the authors trot out another discredited argument to support their main claims:, that computers can’t be racist, because they’re computers:

I don't understand how you can wiggle in racism here as all of the faces in the study were chinese

This misses the fact that no computer or software is created in a vacuum. Software is designed by people, and people who set out to infer criminality from facial features are not free from inherent bias.

I don't think he knows how neural nets work, is it even possible to put in some bias? especially in a case like this when all of the people are from the same race

is sam biddle a kike?

Caleb Long
Caleb Long

it will resonate if the force is continuous and has a certain frequency, which has to be one of the resonant frequencies of the structure
one hit won't cause resonance, and of course resonance will have to be taken into account like it is in pretty much everything that is built now
