I have a question that is practical, but based on a speculative project.

I would like to know the effects on humans and cargo traveling on your standard, hypothetical space elevator of 100k km, because, I am having trouble visualizing it; you're not really in free-fall, but you have a constant velocity at some points, but then you're in space, but you're also traveling very fast, etc.

It relates well to Physics, but it's also speculative in the idea of the space elevator, so it relates well to Worldbuilding, but in the end, I felt it most strongly resembled a Space Exploration question.

Where do space exploration questions based on hypothetical projects, go?
