How graphene can turn the space elevator fantasy into a reality

Adrian Nixon, Senior Editor at InvestorIntel in an interview with InvestorIntel Senior Editor, Jeff Wareham discuss the real possibility of building space elevators in the future. Currently for a human to travel into space, they must go by rocket. Not only is this process very dangerous but is also very expensive and presently the most cost effective way to travel into orbit currently runs USD$250k. For an industry currently valued at $300B, a space elevator would provide a competitive and much safer way to travel. In this interview, Adrian explains how the space elevator idea is over 100 years old and how scientists may potentially use graphene to turn this fantasy into a reality.
