interested in the news on this this week. I am wondering is a single strand of this stronger than a woven number of strands? Obviously the woven strand is stronger in that it will bear a greater load but will the single strand stretch further (bearing only its own weight)? How long a strand could be drawn until it snapped under its own weight in gravity ( as a space tether)? I am thinking that if it could make the distance into space then it could be used to ferry up very small quantities that might eventually add up to a worthwhile amount.
