By now you've heard me babble on about the Space Elevator and how I think it's the future of the human race. Well... Japan, the country, has dedicated themselves to building the first space elevator. And, here http://ping.fm/3OV78 is something they are using to promote the idea.

And Dale, where to build it? If you follow the equator, keeping in mind security issues and facilities, it seems to me there are few options. One seems to be Nauru:

- because of its remoteness - excellent security. Also, it has tarmac roads port facilities and a full runway capable of supporting commercial craft.
