An updated review of nanotechnologies for the space elevator tether
The space elevator tether requires an extraordinary specific ultimate strength (ratio between ultimate strength and density) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been identified as the ideal candidate because of their astonishing strength. This paper reviews CNT manufacture and measured strengths.
