we need full altitude people! cheapest way has to be a tethered balloon... just gotta figure it out



They already have figured it out, and it will cost you about $50,000-$100,000

Hi turtle,

I don't know about any elevator idea; but they do have a man-lifting device in Chile that they are not using anymore. :P

That would be great for spelunking. From what I hear there is gold down there too.:ph34r:

it's really going to revolutionize the sport when they invent star trek style teleporters... you could go straight to 15k instantly! that's gonna be fun.

for now i'll just keep working on the balloon idea.



But once they develop the holodeck, all the guys will be in there doing 3-ways with Megan Fox and Scarlett Johansson.

Better yet, instead of pulling a pilot chute, you could hit the tleleporter, and be right back at 15K.....just imagin the low pull contest!:ph34r:

You don't need to tether the balloon, you just need a pump and a tank. Fill the balloon, ride up, hop off, the pump kicks in and empties the balloon into the tank, it drops back to the ground under its own chute.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Yeah, also useful in the case of total malfunctions. Actually, didn't we see that in the last Star Trek movie?

The Russians are already developing this.
In fact they were testing it recently at Perris.
