We need 2 more of those and a global solar array. And then... Gundams! (00-style) I wouldn't mind getting stuck in that elevator with someone I like!

If they toss garbage out of the elevator, I doubt they'd use a trajectory that would allow it to have a decaying orbit around the Earth. Probably "shoot it toward the sun" or something. Maybe aliens could someday follow the trail of garbage back to Earth!

Ehhh I seen this a lot in video games XD!
Either way, even if it collapse, all the chunks of pieces would all dissolve in Earth's atmosphere before it even hitting people 8P

Oh. Wow.

Well... pretty much no comment..

But I wish them goodluck

This is so pointless, like buttered glue. Why spend $9 billion on something like this when you can improve the well being of your own country

lol, I can picture some joker hitting all the buttons as he gets off, like in a real elevator.
Wonder who's going to be the bellboy.

Sounds cool but can't they think of something better to do with that money? Like disease research or feed the hungry?

Yeah I tried to build a ladder to space once, but my regular ladder wouldn't get me high enough to put the space ladder up.
