No. The anchor for a space elevator must lie on the equator.


I can see no reasoning whatsoever to back this outrageous bunky statement.


over the long miles it would need to cross
The ribbons cannot cross.

The Titanic cannot sink. Germany will not invade Poland. No one would dare shoot JFK. Just what planet are you from? This is utter bunk.


it would need to have links regularly to prevent the two cables colliding and wearing
The ribbons cannot collide.

...And pixies play on your lawn every mornig. You must be pretty damn high to be coming up with this sort of crazy bunkum.

I cannot follow your logic to conclude from the locations of ancient cultures to a space elevator, I really can't?!

Why ancient high-cultures are usually found "around a loop" (likely near the equator)


Not at all,. The orbital line crosses the equator and rises far above it and crashed equally well below it.

Every major temple complex such as the Mayan temples, the Moai stones and even the Great Pyramid in Egypt are on a loop around the earth, just like a ring of lattitude that is offset at an angle.

Even the impact crater that killed the dinosaurs is on it.

And they are generally equally spaced along it.


So how about you show us a map with these points on it, the one you used to work out your claim.

The entire idea is ridiculous.

I mean, we all know the Mayans could teleport themselves to Youranus.

Why would they need a space elevator?

Can't be...everybody knows us ATS Buzzkills are boring old farts with zero concept of Hip.


hey...at 60, all my farts are exquisite new ones, not an old one in the bunch....and hip?...isn't that connected to the thigh?

It is my understanding that for a space elevator to work correctly, it has to have a solid anchor point on the earth.


...Such as a several tens of thousands of ton solid stone pyramid.

It would defeat the entire purpose of an elevator if it required constant burns to of an engine to remain in orbit.



If it were above the atmosphere, it would not need to have propulsion just to stay in orbit, It's orbit, however, would decay unless it were anchored out in space to a point beyond the geostationary point, or unless, it accepted temporary decay of orbit, until the elevator reached the station and then used lightweight propulsion to regain orbit.



Also, a elevvvator to the moon is not really likely,


I fully agreed and fial to understand why you would brnig up such a ludicrous idea.



It would take hours to reatach it at a new position,


Not at all as it could be rapidily extended and then attached to a stone pyramid.



by that time you would need to release it so it didn't break as the moon orbited, this would also negate the entire purpose,


Why would it break if the moon orbited? There would be a 200,000 miles gap between the Moon and elevator.



Making an elevator from a floating platform on the ocean, then another from orbit to the moon would be a much more likely proposition.


Completely insane bunk. Why attach ANYTHING to the Moon? This makes no sense at all.



bush was the first to want to do such "none sense"

edit on 10/27/2012 by Phage because: (no reason given)


What if that were the equator at the time?


Scripture talks about God tilting the Earth with the flood, and scripture talks about God striking down the ladder to heaven and splitting the tongues. Hmmm?

Not that I believe in scripture, LOL!
