In this Indian (sub-continent, not Native American) online newspaper article, Dr. S. S. Verma discusses various space technologies, including Space Elevators. I thought it interesting because it’s just another indication of how far and wide this idea has spread.
IMHO, India is going to be a world power in the not-too-distant future. They will certainly have the technical capabilities to build a Space Elevator, once it becomes possible. And paraphrasing Robert Heinlein; “the laws of Physics work for everyone”.
