Japan Space Elevator Association

Ted Semon found the Japan Space Elevator Association.

I would LOVE IT if the Japanese got into this in a big way. Here’s a country with the technical know-how, the resources and the balls to pull this off.

I'm loving the idea of the food concession for the first space station to go to a Japanese firm. Mmm orbital sushi ..

The Japanese are - as a culture - used to planning around disaster in a way that only people who live in California can appreciate. I'd love to see Japan taking a huge lead in this idea.

Update: Ted Semon's name was spelled incorrectly in this post. My apologies.
