Need wear a special suite to go that high up. I think too many logistics and other issues will crop up. Make the elevator too heavy to be able to reach that desired height.

NASA already runs a competition regarding this.

The idea of building a space elevator by use of the centrifugal force due to earth's rotation has been around for quite some time.
Its only until now that Japan has the crazy balls to really PLAN to/and BUILD such a structure.

All the best and kudos. It takes people with balls and conviction to try something with so much potential to offer the human race a technological quantum leap.

If they succeed, even if it takes a hundred years or more it will be a breakthrough rivaling the development of the microchip.

If they fail, materials science will nevertheless be helped along by their attempts to solve the issues facing the project.

Countries in fact humans on a whole should do more of such developments.

instead of who can make the bigger and more powerful gun/bomb -.-

i think one day before any external factor, humans will wipe each other first.
