A Real Life Elysium

Here is the ultimate modern day "Galt's Gulch", of the type envisioned in the movie Elysium:

A New York architecture firm has unveiled designs for a skyscraper that is out of this world.

Deemed the ‘world’s tallest building ever’, Analemma Tower will be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth– and the only way to leave is by parachute.

The orbital path would swing the tower in a figure eight pattern between the northern and southern hemispheres each day, taking residents on a tour through different parts of the world - all in just a 24 hour orbital cycle.

This is really cool !!!

But wouldn't it piss you off? I fully expect that the likes of Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and several tech tycoons might reside there, but I don't think We The People will be invited.
