# Stability in Lowering a Space Elevator

First question on stack exchange I’ve been lurking and learning for years and finally decided to pose a question for a novel I’m working on.

Given the appropriate advances in material sciences and orbital construction, how would the logistics, including sequencing, work in lowering a cable to earth?

• If you limit your question to the problem of lowering the cable, I promise to vote for reopen - because it's an interesting problem and your Q will become well focused. If you use reality-check and science-based, you may be lucky to get some links/citations with the answers. Mar 29, 2020 at 13:03
