And She's Building A Stairway Elevator to Heaven

Those crazy Japanese are at it again. This time it's not a robotic cat or one of those TV game shows where you stick your head in a giant lizard pit. Which could be a whole post in itself...(see video below). This time, however, it's an ELEVATOR TO SPACE.
"Up and down the 22,000 mile-long (36,000km) cables — or flat ribbons — will run the elevator carriages, themselves requiring huge breakthroughs in engineering to which the biggest Japanese companies and universities have turned their collective attention." (
I'm sometimes scared to get on the elevator in my building, and that's only 8 stories up, imagine going 22,000 freaking miles. No thanks.

Anyway. Here's the amusing video I referred to about 3 sentences ago. Happy Monday everyone.
