Before the Control of Gravity…
While today we depend upon the use of chemical rockets to move materials and people into space. This is very expensive per ounce. To reduce this cost to a more reasonable point, we either need to control gravity or use what’s called a space elevator.
For Rosella’s world, the control of gravity became a reality but before this point, humanity only had one choice which was the construction of a space elevator. Without this step, humanity wouldn’t have been able to make that initial push into space in a way that made economic sense. Exploring ideas such as harvesting materials from asteroids or establishing a base on the moon.
The space debris accumulated during construction is a bigger hurdle for the elevator than the scientific challenge of finding ribbon materials. For this reason, prior to this project, we did a global initiative to clean up this debris from the orbital areas.
Part of this global initiative was rethinking how orbital materials ended up in orbit and lowering the debris footprint they created. Other than that, the bigger problem was gathering up all the particles, ranging from nanoparticles to whole spacecraft.
No one solution would solve the problem. Instead, variations of the following earlier ideas were implemented:
Over several years, we removed enough space debris to allow the beginning of construction of the first space elevators. After controlling gravity, we dismantled the space elevators.
