Fountains of Paradise, The

A group of firms want to build a space elevator on Mars so terraforming can be economically viable. A demonstration of the technology on Earth would help pave the way. Famous engineer Vannevar Morgan heads up the project. There's only one location that will work (mountain on equator) but the locals object on religious grounds.
