The article contains the theory of estimation and computation of suggested installations and four projects. They include: maximum speed given the tensile strength and specific density of material, maximum lift force installation, specific lift force in planet's gravitational field, admissible local load, angle and local deformation of material in different cases, accessible maximum of altitudes of space cabin, speed which space ship can obtain from installation, power of installation, passenger elevator, etc. The projects utilize fibers, whiskers, and nanotubes produced by industry or in scientific laboratories.
