Space elevators were conceptualized by the legendary Russian Scientist and Enginner Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. Space elevators can possibly work on less gravity intensive celestial bodies such as Mercury and Earth’s moon. Kevlar is one possible material to be used for this application. A space elevator can put objects in geostationary orbit, which means that objects can orbit the earth at the earth’s rotation speed.
