The next top nano-tech?

Abstract:
A sky-high space elevator

What would you do with a super-light, super-strong, and super-conductive material like carbon nano-tubes? You could put them into a computer, into stain-resistant clothing, or into a bike frame for enhanced lightness and agility. But this is all child's play in comparison to the space elevator, an idea that scientists, including several at NASA, have considered.
