( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Yes. Once we get the moon to be stable above one point of the earth, there would be (nearly) no force on the rope, and we might get the effect of a Space Elevator.

But the difficulty would be to get the moon into a suitable position, so it could serve as a counterwight.

This would probably lead to a lot of changes on earth, e.g related to the tides. Or to Astrology. But I'd like to focus on the opportunities, e.g rope-climbing-competitions ;-)
