Lol. Even unobtainium tier carbon nanotubes isn’t strong enough to build a space elevator that is as long as the height of objects in GEO. Space elevators was never going to make Space accessible for the average person nor is it possible to build with even materials verging on having magical properties. Orbital rings are one of the few meme space megastructures that is realistic to build with technologies being developed in the next 20 years and that will require cheap super heavy reusable rockets to set up. Musk and Bezos both know that the end game is setting up a space megastructure like an orbital ring that’ll cut the cost of access to space by another order of magnitude and which will make space mining and space industry viable. Who ever build some it first will own space, just like whoever built the railways during the western expansion of the US pretty much owned the small towns and industrial centres which relied on its tracks. It’s why I think Bezos is okay with Musk monopolising the global constellation satellite market because he has his eye on building on what is the equivalent of the railway to space. I’m willing to bet that in the 2020s, Blue Origin and Space will start patenting the complex mechanism in space megastructures like orbital rings. Rockets are just the beginning. Bezos has always said he wants to industrialise space and you can’t industrialise space with rockets.
