What is this?  Well, it’s the lunar (space) elevator!

A new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History will highlight some of the cutting-edge space technology in hand or under way, from a rover that looks for life on Mars to an elevator that rises into space from the moon.

The exhibit opened Saturday (Nov. 19), titled “Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration,” and gives space and tech fans an up-close look at what may be on the horizon for exploring our solar system.

The space elevator has been something scientists and engineers have talked about for many years. It’s kind of cool that it will be part of an exhibit though.  You can read more about this new exhibit and the space elevator by reading this article.
