The purpose of the present paper is to address an old question (posed by Segal [37]) to find a geometric construction of elliptic cohomology. This question has recently become much more pressing due to the work of Mike Hopkins and Haynes Miller [19], who constructed exactly the “right”, or universal, elliptic cohomology,
