Nano skyscrapers may precede space elevator

Abstract:
The carbon nanotube ribbon that is central to building an elevator to space will actually have more practical and immediate applications, Liftport Group president Michael Laine said.

"Way before you see an elevator climbing into the sky, you are going to see buildings and bridges built in an entirely new way," Laine said here. "The thing is a lot closer to a bridge-type project than an aerospace project."
