Re: Space Elevators

For everyone who posts such an answer to such objections, they should go out there and build a mobile phone with their bare hands. CPU and all.

While some things are "possible", they are not practical. See even SpaceX having to modify their designs when real world problems appear.

A space elevator on earth hits too many problems. Most other smaller planets? Go ahead and propose it, it's probably doable.
