Space travel is an exciting experience, but even the evolution of modern technology the distances are still a serious obstacle in our attempts to examine more closely the galaxy. Canadian company Thoth Technology believes that spaceships are not the best way to do this and plans to develop a very interesting facility. In fact, it represents an inflatable tower, which it defines as a “space elevator”.

The concept provides it rises to a height of 20 kilometers and can even replace the work of some of the satellites revolve around the Earth. Engineers also claims that their equipment will be cheaper for the creation of spacecraft and will reduce by 30% the cost of fuel. Probably not know, but despite the huge spaces in the galaxy biggest problem for us, and modern technology is sending the machine in the first 100 kilometers above the surface of the planet where practically border with space.

Thoth Technology believe that their space elevator can deal with this limitation and also will be able to carry not only people, but also a huge amount of cargo. At this stage the company has invested huge resources which are approximately $220 usd per kilogram of weight of the structure. Another interesting detail is that the upper part can be used as a platform for launching rockets, satellites, spacecraft, and others.
