The Space Elevator Development Wiki

Se01 print1 ntx.JPG


This wiki is intended to be a repository of information and a baseline for research of the space elevator. More about this WIki and the effort


  1. Provide accurate information on the construction of a viable space elevator
  2. Be the source of technical information during the initial stages of construction

New Work Completed

12/12/08 Brad Edward's presentation on manned travel up the elevator is uploaded.

10/23/08 GTOSS source code is now publicly available.

7/30/08 Added page in the baseline ribbon on dynamics focusing on work by David Lang

7/26/08 New work space on woven interconnects. Go to Work Space #1 under the second issue on the ribbon page

7/24/08: Exponential Tether Deployment by Blaise Gassend under Deployment

News archive.

Wiki Index

Baseline space elevator design:
  • to be used as a common starting point for ongoing work
  • will be updated continuously as new refinements are made

Major Space Elevator Design Challenges:
  • this is the short list of the major technical challenges we are faced with
  • these challenges are where people can make the greatest impact quickly

Archive of detailed work:
  • detailed calculations, images, designs, etc. will be stored for use and easy retrieval

Simulation software:
  • resource code for conducting simulations of elevator components and interactions
  • current understanding of relationships will be incorporate
  • Scenarios
  • Collaboration
  • Spreadsheets
  • Collada
  • Blender
  • Physics Models
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • K3D
  • Other Software

Activities of Individuals:
  • Individuals and what they are working on
  • This page summarizes the activities of various participants
  • New users should feel free to add their name and information

Open Work Space:
  • Go to this page and you will find links to open workspace pages.
  • These work spaces are open for anyone to use for space elevator development work
  • Pages may have different templates and some will already have work in progress.
