The space elevator Earth-Moon as space transport system without carrier rocket employment. Space Colonization Journal, Issue 2, 2013.

Abstract.

The article gives review of the earlier proposed space elevators constructions for payload removal into space without rockets. It noted that dynamic tether systems, linking geostationary orbit with the Earth, are inefficient. There is description of the patented elevator transport system between the Earth and the Moon, that lets ensure high freight traffic without rockets using. For project realization it’s necessary technologies creation for rope production from carbon nanotubes and high-temperature superconductors development.
