The primary technical concept described on these pages, an innovative potential technique for economically providing electrically powered equatorial ground-to-GEO centrifugally-supported transportation, so as to open up the Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) to feasable construction and use of such large scale facilities as Solar Power Satellites, solar powered total recycling facilities, very efficient high level rocket spaceports, and even large passively shielded (by water ice) wheel-type space cities, as shown on the diagram; the centrifugally-supported KESTS (Kinetic Energy Supported Transportation Structure) is an elliptical hoop shaped like an Orbital Transfer Trajectory around the planet connecting ground up to GEO.
