Space Elevators as explained by the Midnight Tutor

A couple of months ago, we heard the “Mobile Home Astrophysicist’s” take on Space Elevators.  Recently posted on YouTube, we now have the concept of a Space Elevator explained by the Midnight Tutor.

His explanation was a bit hazy as to how climbers would actually ascend the cable and his cable is 48K miles long instead of the 60K miles.  But the gist of his explanation is generally correct and does serve as a ‘quick and dirty’ introduction to the concept.

He also talks about using the Space Elevator to put payloads into LEO, scramjets and other fun and games stuff…
