My friend sent me an article about a Japanese construction company (Obayashi Corp.) that is planning an elevator to the moon by 2050. It will use carbon nanotube technology and magnetic levitation to move the cars up and down. It’s 59, 651 miles from the earth to the moon and will take 7 days, but the cost is estimated to be significantly less than current launch vehicles.
Very futuristic stuff! 🚀
