'Space elevator' man discusses his dream
Impossible. Silly. A wasted effort.
Those are just some of the slams that Bremerton entrepreneur Michael Laine, 37, had to endure as recently as three years ago.
It happened whenever he discussed his grand scheme: to build a carbon nanotube ribbon 62,000 miles into outer space and send laser-powered robotic climbers up it, cost-effectively carrying up cargo into space.
