Session Description:   Upon publishing the International Academy of Astronautics four-year study entitled “Road to the Space Elevator Era,” members of the study see the future a little brighter. The purpose of this study (published Spring 2019) was to assess the critical technological issues and general questions and then present assessments to the Academy to ensure that the topic has been approached with expertise and curiosity. Now the challenge is to initiate appropriate programs, tests, and research to truly enter the Space Elevator Era. This session will discuss the efforts around the world ensuring that the results of the study are incorporated into the engineering and development plans. The invitation is open to show the test results and experimentation results that will indeed lead to space elevators.
