Nixon talking about space elevator and how graphene fits into the picture

Adrian Nixon of Nixene Publishing talks with Liam Critchley about what the space elevator is, how it would work, where and why graphene could be used in the space elevator in the future.

In addition, they discuss the industry challenges needed to overcome before it becomes a reality, as well as the likely cost and time frames of just the graphene-specific parts of the elevator.

All the parts other than the tether can already be made, and this is where it is hoped that graphene can come in.
