      Civil engineers are responsible for turning these buildings into reality. And proposals like the space elevators probably will get rejected by civil engineers because they probably know the materials they have cannot create a sturdy enough rope.

      @Blithering Rando it might cost a lot but I doubt anyone who can afford it would want to live somewhere like that. They would probably end filled with poor people while richer people have nice houses or live in small apartment buildings and get the luxury of being able to go outside. Then the owner of the building can no longer afford to look after it as the rent is so low and it would turn into very unsafe slums.

    The problem with buildings as high as they reach in space would be the atmosphere. There would be a point in the building that would be in set of permanent heat- like when comets pass the stratossphere start burning- so would as well do our structure as well. In order to compensate this there has to be a permanent super cooling system to take down temperature drastically! It could work but what about the costs? What would happpen if it collapses? Wich part of the buliding would disapear in space forever? What if people where inside when this happens? What would happen to earth when tons of burning metal come down on earth? These are all questions wich have to be answered frirst.
    What if they would build it in 2 parts? 1 Part from the ground to as high as possible before atmossphere would roast it and the second part is built at for example the moon? And if you wanna go to moon, the end of the earth part is a rocket elevator launch platform that shoots the "Elevatorrocket" to the highes point from the moon part to enter the 2nd part of the building and then land on moon savely? Or land on whatever floor of the moon part of the building you wanna land? Anyone can follow me?

    Something like the launch loop would probably work best in places like russia or northern canada, where's it's very cold. That way if superconductors are required, there's less cooling required to reach the necessary temperature for proper functionality.

      @Nucleus space elevator seriously? Why not we build a moon elevator that binds the earth to the moon instead? I don’t see any rope that wouldn’t break in such a setup, we gotta keep in mind that the earth is spinning and orbiting the sun, if a rouge asteroid which is just maybe 1 metre square in size hits the space part of the elevator, it will be knocked off orbit and then the rope needs to pull it back on orbit, the rope breaks in the process unless it’s real thick.

    To be honest, the ones beyond X-Seed 4000 is most likely impossible, since they're definitely gonna require a lot of resources in man power, finance, and resources. So the most realistic one that's not really a thing yet will be X-seed, but I doubt it'll be build on Japan soil, since Japan is quite populated and mountainous, and also the fact that there is more tsunamis and earthquakes to consider.

    You forgot about the orbital ring; It would go all the way around the Earth and would have an inner and outer sleeve with the outer sleeve being stationary and tethered to the Earth while the inner sleeve spins fast enough to maintain low earth orbit. This is a more accessible design than the space elevator and believe it or not would use a similar amount of material as the space elevator. People don't understand how much distance is necessary for the geostationary orbit that a space elevator would have to reach; it's a few times the diameter of the Earth. The artist renderings are wildly inaccurate.

      tecnichly unless you are on the top of the tower, you would not reach a stable orbit around earth, so if you just released the elevator capsule from the tower, it would fall back down on the earth, so if its properly made, there should be a way to just decouple the elevator from the tower, and make its way back to earth, with a parachute, like any other spaceship

    I think, before they go on something like X-Seed 4000, they should maybe try the idea of Sky City 1000 for the start or maybe even smaller to see if an arcology like this can really be build and work.
    I mean, i totally like this idea, especially for huge cities like Tokyo, New York or similar cities of this size, but we really shouldnt got too big with this before we know if it is possible or not with our actuall technology.
    The idea of Cky City 1000 is more than 30 years old and still the future, but its not sure if we have reached this future already.

      ​@kaihlis You literally obviously have no idea what I am talking about here is a video explaining what I meanídeo.html
      The video explains all that I explain here and more so if you don't want to read that is fine.
      With active support you are not relying on the strength the materials the structure is made out of, like a helicopter isn't bound by the strength of towers holding it up or dangling it from space.
      You are relying on actively holding it up, hence active support, bad example though as active support structure is still a structure, but you are actively holding the whole structure up.
      With launch loops the actual structure of the loop isn't holding in in place, but the stuff you are firing through it is holding it up, but you can regenerate most of the energy put into the launch loop, because it's a closed loop hence launch loop, you fire metal balls down 1 way and they get looped back around to come back the other way, there is some loss due to efficiency never being 100%.
      but to pump up the launch loop you would need a reactors worth of energy going to it, but to maintain it once it's up you only need 1/10 - 1/50 that energy depending on whether you have super conducting magnets.
      Anyway the video explains all this anyway.

      @Etheoma Have to remember we live on a ball. Further away the support from middle more the forces try to push sideways on your lower levels. So basicly most limiting factor would be earth itself. (Allso material for sure)
