The Space elevator games power beaming competition has been delayed again. This time to March or April of 2011.
The winner (Lasermotive) of the 2009 laser beaming/climber competition has a new video which is embedded below.
The Lasermotive team and company announced new sponsors.
The co-inventors of the modern space elevator concepts Yuri Artsutanov and Jerome Pearson will appear at this year’s Space Elevator Conference, to be held in Redmond, Washington (August 12-15).
These are the guys that postulated the Space Elevator as a tensile structure (as opposed to Tsiolkovsky’s ‘tower’) - something that, with the discovery of carbon nanotubes, might actually be possible to build.
