30 Space elevator simulator

Convert any room into a space elevator by sawing a hole in the door and fixing a screen to the outside, facing in.

Lock a friend inside who hasn’t had a holiday for a while. Show images of different floors flashing past, as if the room/elevator is flying higher and higher through the atmosphere. Eventually, display stars and planets, and finally the unending blackness of the unexplored cosmos. Your friend will be rejuvenated by your show.
