Galactic Harbours will Unify Transportation and Enterprise
The Galactic Harbour will be the volume encompassing the Earth Port and stretching up in a series of cylinders to include two tethers and the region just beyond the Apex Anchors.
In summary, customer product/payloads will enter the Galactic Harbour at the Earth Port and exit at some point along the tether. Along the way, there will be tremendous enterprise development such as easy assembly at GEO, refueling operational satellites and construction, among other things, and release from the Apex Anchor for trips to interplanetary destinations.
What is a Space Elevator?
A Space Elevator (SE) can be thought of as a vertical railroad into space.
- A tether (cable) stretches from the ground to an Apex Anchor (counterweight) 100,000 km up/out in space.
- Elevator cars (tether climbers), powered by electricity travel up and down the tether and carry cargo and eventually humans to and from space.
- The space elevator is the most promising transportation infrastructure on the drawing boards today, combining scalability, low cost, quality of ride, massive payload throughput and safety to deliver truly commercial-grade space access – practically comparable to a train ride into space.
- The massive movement capability as well as the low cost ensure that the infrastructure approach is “right.”
