Space Elevator Patented By Canadian Company

I wonder how they come get you if the elevator decides to stop half way. Thanks to xJ321x for the link.

Once operational, the ThothX Tower would be able to lift up to 10 tonnes of parts for space plane and rocket construction. Spacecraft would then launch from its platform in a single stage and return to the top of the tower for refueling. This allows for great energy savings over conventional rocketry blasting off from the Earth’s surface. The tower would also be a hot tourism destination, Roberts says, with tickets to the top expected to be offered for about $1,000 CAD.
