Can We Create a Tower That Goes Into Space? How Tall Can We Actually Buid?

This may appear to be a ridiculous question in general, yet experts still seem to have difficulty explaining it all together.

The truth is that some of the structures we have created today would have appeared to be impossible to build hundreds of years ago, therefore it’s no surprise that humanity continues to yearn to explore how high we can actually go.

Consider the Burj Khalifa, an 828-meter-tall structure that is set to be one of the world’s highest structures as we know it.

But that’s not all; the Jeddah Tower is also rumored to be the World’s Tallest Building, reaching heights of over 1,001m.

So, how tall can we go? According to the Japanese corporation Taisei Corporation, there isn’t much of a restriction as long as our technology continues to evolve.

They put their idea to the test by designing the X-Seed 4,000 in 1995, a skyscraper that was said to reach heights of up to 4,000m and house 500,000 people.

The limit was set at 4,000 meters, but with our new technology, it looks that we could even escape our atmosphere and go into space.

In 2003, a book called Space Elevators was published that highlighted the idea of 100,000km tall buildings being erected, and now, if we could solve the gravitational pull problem, we could literally get our hands on that exact idea.
