Space elevator[edit]

Hi David,

Have a little question for you. In the article Space elevator under the heading "Materials" there is the following sentence: With Space Elevators like this, Humans can send materials into orbit at a fraction of the current cost (from around $30000 today to $3 per kg, a factor of 104!).

You added the numbers. Could you tell me from what source you have the figure $30,000? I guessed you had the $3 per kg with a space elevator from the webpage of NASA which was the only webpage in the article when you added those numbers. But when I went to this webpage I couldn't find the number $3 per kg. In the pdf on that webpage I found "<$10/kg" and also a cost only based on the energy consumption of this type of space elevator "$1.48/kg".

Could you please tell me the sources where you got those numbers from? If there's no year with them telling in what year the estimate was made in a few years they won't be very useful anymore because of inflation. Moreover conventional ways of launching to geosynchrous orbit could become much cheaper as well.

Thanks a lot in advance, Laudaka 04:26, 15 Feb 2004 (UTC) (Paul/laudaka)

Hi Laudaka,

Thanks for asking. I'll put the answer to your talk page. --David Andel 23:52, 22 Apr 2004 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Amisulpride rec.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Amisulpride rec.gif. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

Your user page[edit]

Hello, I found your user page while doing some wikiarchaeology. . I have restored all of its earliest surviving revisions from old copies of the Wikipedia database, so they are available to everyone now. Hope you don't mind. Graham87 05:27, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, Graham! I am astonished that people do things like this and I like it. David Andel (talk) 21:59, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
