Description

Explore the physics behind space elevators, which would theoretically use a cable anchored to Earth and extending into space.

--

Sending rockets into space requires sacrificing expensive equipment, burning massive amounts of fuel, and risking potential catastrophe. So in the space race of the 21st century, some engineers are abandoning rockets for something more exciting: elevators. What would it take to build such a structure? Fabio Pacucci explores the physics behind modern space elevators.

Lesson by Fabio Pacucci, directed by Tjoff Koong Studios.
