The Space Elevator Development Wiki

Mission

This Wiki site is intended to be the backbone for an open source development of the space elevator. It will be a repository of information and a baseline for future work. Like opensource software, the core of knowledge will be maintained and all are welcome to contribute. Each contribution will be refined and added to the core. The ultimate goal is to provide the knowledge needed for the inevitable construction of the space elevator.
