Going Down…in Spaaaaace
The 3rd Annual International Space Elevator Conference has posted tons of presentations proving that someone is thinking about this stuff and it’s not just some fairy tale. Cool stuff. [Thanks to Spacecraft for the link]
What about space elevators in sf?
Other books (that I have not read) with space elevators:
- The Web Between the Worlds by Charles Sheffield (Credited with being the first sf book to mention a space elevator, although it was coincidentally first published at around the same time as…)
- The Fountains of Paradise by Arthur C. Clarke
- Indistinguishable From Magic by Robert L. Forward (The title taken from a quote of Clarke’s: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”)
