Yea. It's been slow lately. I've considered doing another classic Robot Apocalypse post. We'll see.
However, this is really neat. When I first heard about carbon nano-tubes, I became very excited. I had really hoped for a space elevator, but this application came in a close second. I'm glad to see that someone has worked it out.
Or at least, I will be until my cloths decide to kill me.
I would tell you all about this here in my blog-space, but the good folks over at Pink Tentacle have summed it all up rather nicely, and have dug up a nice little picture as well. I'll be nice and not siphon their bandwidth for my benefit.
