In the National Geographic children’s book Weird but True 4: 300 Outrageous Facts, one of the items mentioned is the Space Elevator. It shows the Mondolithic conceptual graphic of a Space Elevator and the fact mentioned is “In the future, you may be able to take a Space Elevator thousands of miles above the earth.”
I’m pretty sure this is a direct result of the NatGeo article on the Space Elevator that ISEC was able to contribute to a couple of years ago.
