Space Elevators movin’ on up

Er…not really. I’d say that when the optimists say the earliest we’ll see a space elevator is 2035, then don’t hold your breath.

My prediction: Earth space elevators will be feasible in about 30 years. Whether they’ll actually ever be used is another question. I’ll say “yes”, but can think of plenty of reasons why they won’t (security from terrorist attack being the top one).
