Spotted in the Metro this morning was a piece on space elevators (lifts to those in the UK). Seriously. They would be anchored on a sea bed and carbon nano-nodule cables* would run up through the atmosphere and out into space. Just imagine these great elevators would shuttling people into space, I wonder if they will be made of glass…

And to prove that I’m not joking I found this on the internet (via), so it must be true! **

* or some other kind of carbon nano thingy, don’t quote me on this bit
** it IS true. I’m NOT making this up. I am NOT a crackpot
