If I'm not mistaken, Robinson described a "diamond gel helix" in the elevator instead of nanotubes. This may have been an earlier edition, but I thought I'd bring it up before some munchkin comes in here and starts beating his SF Accuracy drum. Jarogers2001 19:39, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi James, How about moving the Science-Fiction part to a separate page, similar like Short Stories? Is the "diamond gel helix" science or fiction? -- Rfc 06:48, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I like the article format as is. The Helix, or possibly it was "lattice" (been a while so I don't remember), is science fiction. -- Jarogers2001 20:41, 6 April 2008 (UTC)


What are th advantages of using an elevator for orbit-to-surface compared to traditional reentry? T.Neo 10:46, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

I have outlined the advantages in the article. What do you think about it now? -- Rfc 15:26, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
