The new Tsiolkovsky

The city is a cosmodrome in the form of a giant tower scraping the lower layers of the mesosphere, with a tent-shaped base in which three tiers emulate different climatic zones. Besides residential areas, the city is home to a business center, R&D institute, university, and factory. Externally, the tower resembles a rod which nearer the base spreads out in different directions via a multitude of tunnels that terminate with arches. The tower summit expands in the shape of a disk on which the cosmodrome is sited; inside is a hotel for space tourists and admirers of the stunning views of Earth. Cargo for delivery to space is transported along a magnetic road to a sorting center, from where an electromagnetic elevator takes it to the launch pad. The required number of returnable traction modules are attached to deliver the cargo into orbit. The modules with empty containers fall back to the Vostochny Cosmodrome, specially adapted to receive them.

Сергей Существует проект башни высотой больше 20 км, готовый к реализации. Самые сильные ветра на высоте до 10 км, я не утверждаю, что то, что я описал, обязательно построят, это скорее фантазия, но кто знает, может её и воплотят.
