Sigh...the far side.
Today U.S. naval forces are dependent on space systems in many ways—for communications; command and control; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR); navigation; and meteorology and oceanography (METOC)—and they will be even more so in the future.
In particular, the Department of the Navy has witnessed significant changes in both the national security environment and the Department of Defense (DOD) posture toward the support and development of space technologies.
While the Navy’s specific roles and responsibilities in support of this mission remain undefined, warranting clarification, they will likely entail new and greater reliance on space—for example, to supply near-continuous, open-ocean surveillance of all surface craft.

Nice thread Z.
I am happy to know those "lines" seen in images are actually laser beams. I didn't buy the whole space elevator thing, but this explanation is the best yet.
Keep up the good work.
