Happy Space Elevator Day! Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
Today is happy Space Elevator day. Why is that? That is because LiftPort, a space elevator company plans on launching the first "lifter shuttle" in orbit on October of this day in 2031.

LiftPort is one of the few (and possibly only) company out there striving to make space available to all (and not just the wealthy and healthy) and if you would like to help make this dream a reality, you can support them by either purchasing their book, enlisting as a LiftPort Ambassador or simply Google-bombing the word "space elevator" with LiftPort's homepage as you can see from the example below:

Although only one score and four years away, wouldn't it be nice to ride in a space elevator? (if not you, at least your kids could go up).

Note: Did we mention listening to music on the way up? (Hat Tip: Space Elevator Blog)

  1. I've been slack in my blog duties - Fall is the busy season at the day job.

    Space Elevator Day and I didn't even mark it down. Thanks for noticing!


You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
