The aim of the project is to build a space elevator https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_elevator.

A space elevator is the only unrivaled way to build spaceships, mine satellites and really access what our universe has to offer. An ICO is a perfect opportunity to start something that will be built in the nearest future, considering the newest material technology breakthroughs, advancements in robotics and the coming fusion nuclear power.

The same structure will be then built in several places on the solar system to take advantage of this cost-effective transportation system.

 

By creating a way to finance the project privately we can accelerate the process and also have a fabulous ROI.

The object of the investment is a crypto currency that gives you the right to send one Kg into space via the Space elevator, as you might have calculated yourself the price is very low today but it might change quite fast.

We don’t want only to make money but also to help humanity evolve to the next step.

When this ICO will be known it will raise awareness around the project, the space elevator (skg) price will skyrocket and so will the interest for the human race to become an interplanetary species.

Short-term and long-term benefits

Early investors will benefit from joining the crowdfunding because the skg will increase its value towards Ether and other currencies including $. Once the skg will be on the exchanges, the global interest will further push the value up to unforeseen levels, this will benefit long term investors as well.

However the actual construction will take time, we can estimate 10 years.

The SpaceKg will become a commodity to exchange and an incredible asset to hold for the future.

If you don’t have Ethereum already, it might be a good time to start investing while you think about this project.

Q1 - Q2 2019

Complete the ICO, based on the resources define a global marketing plan

Q2 - Q3 2019

Create an decentralized crypto currency and list it on all major exchanges

Q3 - Q4 2019

Launch the first test in a small scale of a carbon nanotubes design that can be later be up-scaled to the real space elevator

Q1 - Q2 2020

Further marketing and involvement of promoters, at this point we could already expect the SKG to start appreciating significantly.

Q3 - Q4 2020

With the huge financial resources available we will attract further brilliant engineers into the project.

We will also be able to negotiate the shipment of the nanotube tether into space

Q1 - Q2 2021

The space elevator construction starts:

  • On Earth, on the top of the major montains in Equador like Sincholagua
  • In Space, sending the tether with our contractor space company

At this point we will expect the SKG to be around 100$ – 200$

1 SKG = 0,2 USD

How it works

1 skg = 1 kg lifted into space via the space elevator, considering current price of sending 1 kg weight into space is around 20000$ using a space elevator the cost will be between 100$ to 200$, this will strongly appreciate the price of the skg in the long term.

Dare to be different

The NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts (NIAC) funded a feasibility study into the Space Elevator, using one of their most respected scientists, Bradley C. Edwards. Dr. Edwards conducted a thorough six-month investigation and reported back with findings based on an assessment of the challenges involved and the key components of the technology:

There are four basic elements of a space elevator.

  1. The base station and anchor.
  2. The counterweight and orbital space station.
  3. The tether (the cable that connects the surface to space).
  4. The climber (the elevator carriage).

Dr. Edwards found that given enough money and time, everything apart from the tether could be created with the current technology. There was no material strong enough to make the tether.

I’m driving this endeavor alone for now, I believe that having a big team would have a tremendous operating cost at this early stage.

An Initial Coin Offering, also commonly referred to as an ICO, is a fundraising mechanism in which new projects sell their underlying crypto tokens in exchange for bitcoin and ether. It’s somewhat similar to an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in which investors purchase shares of a company.

What is a Space Elevator

A Space Elevator (SE) can be thought of as a vertical railroad into space. A cable (Tether) stretches from the ground to a Counterweight 100,000 km up/out in space. Elevator cars (Climbers), powered by electricity travel up and down the Tether and carry cargo and eventually humans to and from space.

Why build a Space Elevator

Cargo Capacity: Using a Tether that is just 2.5 inches in diameter could support the lifting of three complete International Space Stations per day, the highly scalable nature of the elevator allow this capacity to be expanded almost infinitely.

Cost: Shipping cargo into space will be significantly reduced in price to the realm of dollars per kilogram compared with over $20,000 per kilogram today.

Safety: Though much slower than a conventional rocket, the ride is much smoother, akin to riding on a high-speed railway line, this means there are no high-g forces or explosives.

What are the main components of a Space Elevator

The Tether: This is the ‘railway’ that stretches from the earth to orbit, about 100,000 km into space. Made from carbon nanotubes, it will be stronger than any construction material today.

The Ground Station: This structure serves to anchor the Tether to Earth and as the loading and unloading station. It will be located on or very near the earth’s equator.

The Counterweight: This is a large mass located at the outer end of the Tether to keep the Tether taut.

The Climbers: These are the ‘elevator cars’ traveling up and down the Tether, carrying cargo and eventually humans into orbit.

The Power Sources for the Climbers: A combination of lasers and the sun will illuminate solar cells on the Climbers, giving them the energy necessary for the week long journey into space.

How will a Space Elevator work

Periodically a Climber carrying cargo or people will be attached at the Ground Station. The Climbers will ascend the Tether, quickly leave the atmosphere and begin to make their way past Low Earth Orbit, between 160 and 2000 km up. While passing through this zone, cargo can be jettisoned to enter its own orbit around the earth. After four to five days, the Climber will reach Geosynchronous Orbit where more cargo will be detached. The cargo that remains on the tether above Geosynchronous Orbit will be moving faster than required to stay in orbit and can be detached and sent to destinations such as the Moon or Mars. The Climbers will then ascend to the end of the Tether where they will become part of the Counterweight. Several Climbers will be on the Tether at all times, each carrying their own small propulsion systems to ‘move’ the Tether out of the way of orbiting satellites and large space debris. Smaller space debris will be allowed to impact the Tether with the resulting damage taken care of by the Maintenance Climbers. Maintenance Climbers will be a constant companion of the Tether. They will travel the tether, continuously inspecting it and making repairs.

Who invented the space elevator.

The idea of a Space Elevator can be attributed to several different visionaries spread over more than one hundred years. In 1895 a Russian scientist named Konstantin Tsiolkovsky first proposed a tower into space. In 1959 another Russian scientist, Yuri Artsutanov came up with the idea of a tensile structure, something being pulled away rather than built up, to get into space. This idea used a satellite in Geosynchronous Orbit (GEO) to send a Tether down to the earth. In 1966 the idea moved in the U.S. with four American scientists writing an article about their “sky-hook” in the journal Science. American Jerome Pearson independently ‘discovered’ the idea of a Space Elevator and, in 1975 published his concept of the “Orbital Tower”. By 1979 the concept was being spread to a larger audience by Arthur C. Clark in his novel The Fountains of Paradise.

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

“There’s a way to do it better – find it.”

“I don’t know anything about mathematics; can’t even do proportion. But I can hire all the good mathematicians I need for fifteen dollars a week.”
