    By increasing number of people, the people's work area will have to move from the earth to the space in the near future. Now they go to the space using the space ship. But it cannot carry a lot of people in one flight. Furthermore there are some problems of the cost and air pollution by burning the fuel of space ship. Therefore it is necessary to propose an easier method for going to the space. There is a space elevator as one of new methods to efficiently go to the space. I would like to report about a problem whether a space elevator can be made using macro structures made of carbon nanotubes was discussed by ideal models of carbon nanotube yarn and sheet and experimental data reported by other groups. I'm looking for some collaborative partners.

    You can see my report from here or here.

    I'm glad if give me your opinions. I would like to realize my dream.

    Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately the medium you have chosen for your paper renders it practically illegible on a laptop screen. From what I could make out there appeared to be two limitations:

    Your calculations were theoretical and not validated by any new experimental data. Is this correct?

    Although you used several equations your conclusions were expressed qualitatively, not quantitatively. Is that correct?

    Thank you for your quick reply. I'm sorry for my uploaded images. So I resubmitted it to other site.
    You can download it from https://www.tagmydoc.com/dl/1JoBkD/5Yw
    If you can see easily, I'm glad. But I have to say sorry for my poor English skill.




    >Your calculations were theoretical and not validated by any new experimental data. Is this correct?


    Using my models and existing various experimental data, I wanted to try to confirm if the material with high tensile strength can be made. In my models, it is found that the material can be made.




    >Although you used several equations your conclusions were expressed qualitatively, not quantitatively. Is that correct?


    This is Incorrect. I think that quantitative results were obtained because existing experimental data was used.

    Thank you for your reply. I shall download the paper and read it later today. I hope I shall be able to post comments/questions this evening. I have been fascinated by the concept of space elevators since reading Clarke's "Fountains of Paradise".

    Thank you for your reply. I'm glad when I discuss about it with a lot of people.


    When I saw an image of space elevator at NASA's homepage, making it became my dream. I like studying and thinking various things. So I thought of realizing my dream and made this report. If I can work to make space elevator, I want to go everywhere.
