What Is It Now

KESTS to GEO at the present time (2002) is an extensively developed technical conceptual design preparing for an electromechanical interconnect between the Earth's surface and the orbit that moves synchronously with the Earth's surface, GEO.

Exploring the potentials and implications of this KESTSGEO concept produce multiple cascades of thoughtful visions, filling in the details of its functioning mechanisms, transportation natures and capacities, efficiencies, economics, and effects on people and civilization's directions thereafter.

And, much as the railroads made the large scale opening up of the American cintinent interior and western areas, the kestsgeo spacerail could open up the vast resources of high Earth orbit environment in enormous ways. This could enable such potential functions as providing ample clean electrical power for the planet to conserve petrochemical reserves, total recycling of industry's most toxic wastes, lifting spacecraft electrically to GEO where they could efficiently launch to points throughout the solar system, and enable the construction of the large scale space settlements formerly envisioned for construction at L5.
