WCS finds symbiotic relationship with Space Elevator

Creating a global Weather Control System (WCS)

A recent development may allow for the cost effective creation and maintenance of the WCS. The Space Elevator is estimated to cost around $30 billion. This seems at first glance to be an extraordinarily expensive investment. But think of the short term payback! Over $1 Trillion dollars is lost EVERY YEAR to rebuild following weather damage and related revenue losses.

The WCS can be built for a fraction of the cost as compared to lofting the entire system with a space shuttle. The Space Elevator is basically a long cable that stretches from the Earth and is attached to a heavy weight out in space. The centrifugal force from the rotation of the Earth keeps the cable stretched tight. An elevator literally climbs the cable to allow access between space and the surface of the Earth. Transit time is estimated to be about one week. The cost per pound transferred is estimated to be about $200.

The Space Elevator significantly reduces the cost of making and maintaining the Weather Control System. The Weather Control System is a huge reason for building the Space Elevator.

The WCS in conjunction with the Space Elevator represents a savings in many billions of dollars per year in avoiding damages from natural causes we currently have no control over. Drought and the related lost farm products, hurricanes and tornados and the loss of property, the losses by family income and insurance company losses related to natural disasters, losses from extreme weather conditions from being too hot or too cold, …

As with any advanced technology, the Space Elevator and Weather Control System requires ethical management and oversight.

Along with the development of the Space Elevator, mass production of Carbon Nanotubes will provide enormous financial opportunities for startup companies.

  • Vehicle components that are lighter yet hundreds of times stronger than at present. Engines weighing 20 pounds producing 150 hp. Windshields and body parts that are puncture and bulletproof. Tires that use less material, are stronger, and provide better performance. Belting can be stronger and more wear resistant.
  • Ropes and cables can include strands of nanotubes to reduce the size while providing greater strength. Ocean going tug boats can use lines (ropes) a fraction of the current diameters and weights to move and control tankers and cargo vessels.
  • Bicycles can be reduced in weight to less than 3 pounds; while being considerably stronger, more rigid, and with active suspension built into the frame.
  • Sheeting so strong that it is largely bulletproof. Small strands of nanotubes embedded in windows make iron bars on housing unnecessary. The glass system itself would be so strong that a gorilla could not break through.
  • Construction equipment whose structural components are interlaced with nanotubes would be emensely more stronger and more durable. The same size cylinders could feasibly have 25,000 psi pumps fitted to the equipment using virtually the same blueprints. Increasing the power of the average track hoe for instance by 15 times. More weight would need to be added to the track hoe just to hold it down.
  • Building materials hundreds of times stronger than anything we currently have.
  • The high temperature conductivity of nanotubes makes them interesting for cutting applications. Saws that dissipate the heat quickly and that bend out of the cut to maintain a constant cutting load and bend into the cut when the cut is empty; self clearing teeth.
  • Having a material that is over a thousand times stronger than steel allows cutting heads to have greater clearances for debris removal, while still having adequate strength to hold the cutting tools. In boring equipment, productivity can be increased by many factors; speed, precision, power efficiency, minimized weight, volumetric considerations, repair times, …
  • Specialized habitats can be created that can survive extremely harsh conditions. Nanotubes in some configurations are self-mending. A habitat could exist at the deepest portion of the ocean. With what we consider normal atmospheric pressure inside, and pressures that would kill us outside.
  • Boring machines could harvest the rich carbon veins that line the oceans bottom to provide the basic materials for constructing the nanotubes.
  • Polymers interlaced with carbon nanotubes become extraordinarily durable. The equivalent of dropping a laptop from a 500 story building would not crack the case, so long as the case was made to spin somewhat flat on the way down (terminal velocity).
  • There are enormous uses for nanotubes for the handicapped. Wheelchairs that weigh a fraction of what they presently do. Actuators that mimic the actual human hand. Surgical implants that are stronger and more durable than human equivalents.

All this becomes feasible when Carbon Nanotubes go into mass production; with the need to Reverse Global Warming, this may accelerate the resources put into this development.
