1 mile is just incomprehensible... It won't even look real, if it's built.

Well let's just just remind ourselves Kingdom Tower was named Mile Hight Tower once too. It obviously needs to be taller than kt but it can very well end up 1300m or 1400m just to beat the kt.

It's a space elevator. Even if it sounds like science-fiction, it could be build in this century. Multiple organizations around the world are trying to invent the necessary technologies and build one

It really has only been a week or so since the last updates. Make sure you visit those pages of a week or two back. Lots of great pics that show each wing of the foundation and core being poured These update pics will be referenced for the next several years during the climb in construction, just like that first picture of it being above the Raft or foundation. Major milestone pics to follow

Space elevators that rise as high as the orbit of the Hubble Telescope, are what amateur astronomers like myself dream of!!!
