It's time for a progress report on the Space Elevator. I really do hope that I get to see this in my lifetime, although I'm concerned about the security of such a project. This would surely be one of the most tempting objects in the world for terrorist activity, and if Kim Stanley Robinson's depiction in Red Mars of what a space elevator crashing to the planet is accurate, I'd be very frightened indeed.
