Space elevator will connect the Earth and Space

Artsutanov Yuri : scientist
Space will be reachable by space elevator. Artsutanov suggests using a geosynchronous satellite as the base from which to build the tower. By using a counterweight, the cable would be lowered from geosynchronous orbit to the surface of the Earth, while the counterweight was extended from the satellite away from the Earth.
