Japan to Test World’s First Space Elevator

Tokyo Japanese scientists are preparing to use elevator in space first experiment can be done in this month. It will not be sent to humans in space, but two satellites can be connected through a cable. This small version will be used to check the technical through satellite.

Scientists at Shinjukuoka University have just built a small elevator for testing. There will be a box that is only six centimeters long, three centimeters wide and three centimeters high. If everything is okay then the space between two mini satellites will be able to cables up to 10 meters in space. With this, both the satellites will be in close contact with each other.

Right now just now: In order to monitor every activity of the elevator box, the cameras will also be installed on the Satellite. However, in order to meet the ambitious dream of using the elevator in space, it is full of early experiments.

Idea came 123 years ago: Ideal for the first time in space was given by Russian scientist Constantin Tosilkovski in 1895. In his mind, this idea came after seeing the Eiffel Tower. About a century later, Arthur C. Clarke repeated this idea in his novel. However, due to technical constraints no major progress has been made in this direction.

After 32 years, preparing to send man to space in the elevator : Japan’s construction company is preparing to make Obayashi man an e-mailer in space. Obayashi is also associated with the use of Shijuoka University. The company wants to send the person to space in 2050 with its own elevator. He says that carbon nanotube technology will be used to make space elevator. The carbon is very light and 20 times stronger than steel.
