Building big stuff in space

Even though this post from the website (a very strange site, to be sure) only lightly touches on the subject of Space Elevators, it’s overall theme; building big things in space, is a subject which is interesting all by itself.

The post also briefly mentions Dextre, the Canadian-built robot now sitting on the ISS.  I would imagine that robots similar to Dextre will play a major role in actually building and maintaining a Space Elevator.

This post also contains a clip from one of the most under-rated movies ever, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
