Nope! We're indie filmmakers who asked LiftPort if we could make a documentary about them. Luckily, they said yes, and have given us unrestricted access to see how the sausage (and space elevator) is made. You'll get the unfiltered story, warts and all.
Building an elevator from Earth to space isn't possible with current technology. Instead, Michael and the Liftport crew are building something that is: an elevator on the Moon that reaches out into space. More than a dozen countries already operate space programs sophisticated enough to dock with such an elevator, and that brings the Moon closer than ever before. Reaching the lunar surface would be as easy as riding down a tether.
