This website is a compendium of all space-elevator-related items / postings / announcements / blog-entries / artwork / interviews / etc. that I have been able to locate on the Internet and elsewhere. It will also contain opinions (expert and not) about various aspects of Space Elevator development.

My name is Ted Semon. I am a retired Software Engineer and I have been fascinated by the concept of a Space Elevator ever since I read Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s The Fountains of Paradise. I want to contribute, somehow, someway, to making the first Space Elevator a reality. This Blog is my initial contribution to this effort.
I believe that humanity MUST take all steps necessary to explore and colonize places outside our homeworld. I hope that it’s we Americans who will lead the way, but in the final analysis it doesn’t matter who does it, just as long as it happens. I think a functioning Space Elevator, hopefully many of them, will go a long way towards making this happen.
