# Space Elevator

Create a space elevator and estimate the mass, length, and time requirements

km

Surface Gravity: 9.83 m/s²

g/cm³

Planet Mass: 5.99e+24 kg

hours

Geostationary Orbit: 35,911.79 km

km/h

Travel Time: 71.82 hours

tonne

Required Energy: 97.83 MWh

Max Tensile Strength: 130,000 Mpa

Minimum Mass: 2.98e+12 kg

Cross Sectional Area: 31,014.81 m^{2}

Cylinder Radius: 99.36 m

### Time: 0 days, 0 hours

**Note:** We are assuming a constant radius cylinder for the Space Elevator geometry. You could taper the tether for optimal mass savings.

The elevator height should be to scale with the planet. The elevator width is not visually accurate because it would be too small to see.
