To the International Space Elevator Fund,

Greetings! I represent the Respubliko de Libereco Ministry of Space Development (MSD). I am pleased to inform you that the ISEF is eligible for a donation of $10 billion from our International Space Research fund. However, before we can send the money, we need you to make a 0.1% ($10 million) security deposit, to make sure that the money does not go towards WMDs or other projects that our government does not approve of. This money will be refunded after one year if all conditions are met.

We will agree with your stipulations to an utmost sense of honor. We are overwhelmed that such a donation can be made. Here are our answers to your questions:
Do you guarantee that this money will not be used in the creation of WMDs? Absolutely not. We may or may not use a WMD like device in an endeavor for travel use only, (I.E.) Bomb propulsion.
Do you guarantee that you will take all steps necessary to prevent this money from being lost due to corruption? With an utmost sense of duty we will prevent corruption anywhere. Our nation is in the top 10% of least corrupt Governments.
Will you let a Liberecan inspector inspect your site a year from now to ensure that these conditions are being met? We will allow any and all Liberecan officials to inspect and assist in the construction and operation of the Elevator.

We look forward to your reply,
President Von Richter

This is nearly impossible, according to wikipedia, sci-show,vsauce and pop-science, It would cost $1,000 per kilogram, The cable would need to reach at least 35,000 kilometers from the earth, The counterweight would have to be extfemley heavy and not man-made because the technology to bring something man made and heavy enough to that distance does not exist. Also bringing a astroid of that size close enough for the space elevator would be extremley risky and dangerous. Finally, the only existing material strong, flexible and light enough would be carbon nanotubes, which have to be assembled atom by atom. Also the moon would not be a good counterweight because it rotates while it orbits. So personally I'd rather invest in sending humans to mars. I will however donate $123,000,000,000NSD because the project is possible, but just barley.

Like i said in the first post, this is not really a practicality project just for fun. I do agree that sending people to Mars is in theory more feasible but that also poses extreme risk, a space flight with zero gravity for 6 months would reap havoc on the human body, let alone carrying enough food etc etc.

However your donation is graciously accepted and we look forward to your continued support.

To all supporting nations of the ISEF,

Our organization has now decided that we require the following sites for the project to continue:

1. An elevator anchor point, it must be at least 4000ft above sea level and must have access to major roadways and must be within 100 Miles of a large airport. (The nation MUST deem this area international territory.)

2. A central office building located on the Elevator anchor site. This building(s) must be able to house 845 personnel with the needed hardware.

3. A security force with barracks and sufficient arms. Must meet a minimum of 500 personnel and vehicles.

4. A power grid powerful enough to operate the site and the Elevator.

5. A production compound for the needed materials to build the nano tube line.

Any nation may choose to allocate their funds to any of these requirements or any other necessities that are deemed necessary.

We all appreciate your assistance,
The Hessian Space Agency/ISEF
President Von Richter

To whom it may concern,

Greetings. I represent the Foreign Ministry of the Respubliko de Libereco. I have some bad news for the International Space Elevator Fund.
It has come to our attention that you have been offered a donation from the Respubliko de Libereco Ministry of Space Development, and have sent a large security deposit to said ministry. However, the Respubliko de Libereco does not have a Ministry of Space Development. The person calling himself 'Mr. Malamika' does not represent any branch of the Liberecan government; he is a scam artist, most likely the same one responsible for recently defrauding Kueland out of millions of dollars.
We will do our best to catch this thief. However, we have tried and failed to do so in the past, so we cannot guarantee that we will catch him.

Sincerely,
The Foreign Ministry of Respubliko de Libereco.

P.S. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to refund you the stolen money.

No not necessarily, the centripetal force of the earth spinning is what keeps the elevator up.
