Liftport’s Project Description: LiftPort’s proposed research will develop practical, near-term solutions for construction and expansion of a Lunar Elevator. The study will include characterization of materials; analysis of required rocketry and robotics; and evaluation of landing sites and methods of anchoring to the Lunar surface. Additionally, Ribbon spooling, infrastructure deployment, and micrometeorite mitigation techniques will be explored.
Thank you, elevating Boston.
Is it possible?
This is the machine room of a vintage Otis bottom drive winding drum traction elevator! This is in San Francisco, CA. This elevator was installed in 1914, making it 100 years old!
Here is a comparison of new and old. We are at Hilton Ballpark and they have replaced a few original Westys with some new Schindler PORTS, elevators you can control by touchscreen. Hope you enjoy!
Check out this elevator that goes all the way to the top of Rockefeller Center. Great lights going up that you can see through a clear ceiling.
New sensors are being installed in some Atlanta elevators to prevent people from urinating in them. This is great news! Who hasn’t gotten in an elevator and thought…gross…? New improvements to the elevators in Atlanta’s public transport system promise to help change that.
