A Future Journey To High Heavens - A Vision Of Tomorrow's Reality

Once upon a time, the biblical patriarch Jacob had a dream of a ladder leading to heaven, and angels ascending and descending on it.

We, modern human, also have a dream to come closer to high heavens and the idea of a space elevator is not a new one. Already, in 1895, a Russian called Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857 – 1935), Russian rocket scientists and a true visionary and pioneer of astronautics proposed a free-standing “Tsiolkovsky” tower that would stretch from the Earth’s surface to a ‘counterweight’ somewhere in geostationary orbit.

Later many others came up with ideas.

By 2050, however, fast developing technologies are able to deliver genetically-modified spider silk. With this material, it could be possible to construct a super strong cable.
