one word "Amazing"
Teong Beng Ang
I must take this out of this world ride, it's a once in a lifetime experience.
I am hella scared of elevators but this journey-
I am looking forward to it
The race has began.
Ching Choy Yee
Wow.... Hope to see this in my lifetime..peace
The possibilities are endless.
Awesome, just do it!
Amazingly brave and creative...
That’s insane! Can count on the date of moon travel!
Inspiring, Exciting, Fascinating.....
OMG!!! What an amazing ride.
That is great, stairway to heaven

Better than the flying helicopter in mars.
This has been dreamed of for many decades. But the space elevator is beyond the limits of the physical properties of materials available today.. I think. Has this been assessed properly before announcement?
This can be possible not in the form of elevators but maybe possible as a winch.
@Monkey King someone did the math before a few years ago. The length of the cable will need to be pretty long. 17 km minimum.
Not really space elevator need a tensile strength of around 50GPa, while newest research of twisted single crystal graphene already has a tensile strength of 130GPa and possibly higher, in the future once the cost is down, space elevator would be a go.
@Matthew TIKI no graphene has been created that is longer than a a centimeter... you have to actually be able to manufacture it physically.
Beyond the limits of physical properties of materials available today? I'm a materials science grad with an advanced materials startup and I know for a fact it is not, besides, didn't you watch the video of the part where it says Carbon Nanotube?
@Garrison Robbie wow. U sound very confident. until it is up in the air and delivering anything into space, I although would like to see humanity achieve new heights, would take this dream with a pinch of salt.
@Garrison Robbie did they say it was approved? Wow. Can't wait to see
@Rasscal No, the point is that you're in no position to be skeptical because you don't know better than these scientists who made it.
@Rasscal i think this will be the next phase of project for china after they fully launch their space station in 2022

There have been many space elevator concepts over the past decads, but so far every time the idea resurfaces it disappears shortly after. So it will be interesting to see if this time more will happen
Oh that's very clever.
I love the manned lunar Rover ... China
Wow..what a creative idea!
Awesome. Go ahead china
Elevator to the space, this is the future.
Meanwhile our indian government can't even provide us oxygen
Stay strong brother. Hope india can recover as soon as possible.

Brother. It's an allocation of resources. Demoncracy only plan for the next Election. Nation planning objective is 100yrs of 4-5 generations. As an environmental science UK graduate 70's, we discussed the problem in the western world. They westerners were not so corrupted at the time. Now it's all about money and assets.
Oxygen is free in the air
@Level1 Selamat1 medical oxygen, not atmospheric oxygen
For the sake of our increasingly polluted atmosphere I hope it happens one day, but I doubt it could happen in the next few centuries let alone the next few decades.
we have to wait for china's official timeline for this rollout
This is merely a design concept by scientists who are envisaging how we might transport cargo and personnel btw Earth and the Moon in the future. It is no proof of feasibility and is dependent on advanced manufacturing and materials that we do not yet have at scale, not to mention the cost.
Amazing stuff! let them continue to fight on earth, China rapidly moving forward.
That's basically the Space Elevator. Been a concept since the 50s.
Only CHINA can do it
Hope its become reality..
Since there is already an agreement of a joint project with Russia for a moon base I think this will be possible faster than anyone of us can realise. I already see the beginings of a moon base in just a few years.
Wtfff amazing. Please do it
Sounds impossible. However, need further rnd.
Uuhff....wwoooooww ..woow wooow!! Amazing China!!
The cable will have to be Light and Strong enough. Do we have such a cable yet?
Incredible, China is catching up and start leading in short future.
Amazing.i wont be surprise if the 1st stargate is from china
While the others spend money on building out-of-date weapon systems, China can spend on building future space exploration systems.
If only they could have understood the planetary mechanics better
I don't even dare to think like this
Daniel Terence Yu
Didn't show how the capsule was caught by the second base module..
If the carbon nanotube breaks, the speed it whips the earth could be catastrophic. Engineers must make sure that this won't happen
The future of food delivery will also be the same but faster.
BRI to the Moon!
So is China planning to build this in a year or so?
