Using the "physics" we are taught these days it's no wonder the approach to the space elevator is discussed on the "cable" level. How about force fields? They have been investigated since 1890 at least but, strangely, we never seem to hear about them. Would open the antigrav can of worms, wouldn't it?

In 1907 - three years after the Wright brothers' flight -  the Scientific American still published articles declaring the impossibility of heavier-than-air flight. Some science! With our establishment of high priests defending the dogma instead of doing science, nobody wonders why we have no official theory of gravity. Without knowing about gravity how are they going to build a functioning space elevator?

Good point!

We must know and find out what is gravity

We must look into alternative energy fields

How about magnetic force field?

Or other force fields?

Thanks for your comments!
