Lunar Space Lift

One of my favorite ideas has always been building an elevator from the moon to space. Send a few dozen CNC machines, mining robots, a smelting facility, and a factory to build solar cells and we will suddenly have a way to construct much larger space ships than we ever could construct from earth.

It is good to see this idea finally is getting some serious attention. I rather question their 800 million dollar price estimate, but if it could be done for ten times that it would be worthwhile.
