starship-design: just a note..

ok, first, do you guys remember in gardens of paradise or whatever
that book was called, arthur c. clarke made up that space elevator
with that string that made it easy to get stuff up into space.. (yea
thats a pretty bad description but i cant remember it :D).. well 
anyway in popsci they mention that scientists have created some type
of carbon filament that can withstand the atmospheric pressure put on
itself when suspended from orbit.. theres so much speculation and 
guesswork in this group, i figgered we needed a little solid fact :)


p.s. email me if you want more info
