Over the Christmas, +Michael Laine has posted updates to the Kickstarter project (with more to come) about the progress being made, plans being made and connections being made.

I still think a viable option is to use Hydrogen balloon, at it's apex, inject oxygen to a small engine, ignite and boost to a higher orbit...use the empty balloon for a solar sail.   more at www.h2liftship.com

Pretty accurate, I'd say.  The only UK bias I can see is the Helen Sharman bit, but perhaps that's because I'm British!  It's obviously at least 5 years old, judging by the +Virgin Galactic timeline and the comment about the space station completion scheduled for 2010.

Thanks for sharing.  Hopefully some of the kids who wrote that will be able to ride to LEO on an orbital tether one day!

“Link Humanity from Earth, to our Moon, to the Planets and to the Stars.”
Introduction
For 40 years we have not had a rocket capable of "soft-landing" on the moon. Because of this the Moon has remained out of reach for two generations. However, we've seen significant breakthroughs in technology we call CST's, or Civilization Shifting Technologies. 

Our proposed research will develop practical, near-term solutions for construction and expansion of a Lunar Elevator. The study will include characterization of materials, rocketry analysis, and anchoring techniques. The future isn't as far away as you think it is.
