OK, groupmind - does anyone here use Adobe InDesign CS4?  I specifically need someone who can open up an IDML file and export it as an INX file so that my old version of CS 3 can open up a file for me to edit.

Newer versions (CS5 and later) lack the INX export option, and CS3 lacks the IDML import option.

If anyone knows of an IDML import plugin for CS3, I'll cheerfully take that instead....

Of note is that they say that a 2 km tower doesn't require additional research.

I am curious about whether or not there's a noticeable discrepancy in fuel use or total delta-v at altitudes of less than 20 km for a launch tower.  At some point, the "cost to build" and "benefit for construction" lines cross.  I'm not sure where that point is.
Saudi Arabia is building the world's tallest tower. Once done, it will be 558 feet taller than the Burj Khalifa.

Gareth is much more entertaining when he's not sedated.  He's also a wee bit more ornery.

He's also really close to his goal - if anyone can help, please do.
