We now have a new fellow-traveler in Space Elevator-land; Captain Casual. You can view his adventure (which he labels as Episode 1) below.
I think this has promise, but I’m not sure where the “700 miles of fullerene cable comes in” – a real space elevator would need to be about 60,000 miles long. Maybe we’ll find out in a future episode.
You know, we need to come up with a moniker for these guys (the ones at Elevator2Space and now Captain Casual).
‘Elevatornauts’ doesn’t roll off the tongue. Shortening it to ‘Vator-nauts’ sounds better but no one will know what you’re talking about.
‘Cable-nauts’ or ‘tether-nauts’?
As this is all comedy, maybe ‘Comic-nauts’ (like cosmonauts)?
If you have any suggestions, please send them in…
