LiftPort October, 2005 General Newsletter Released

This Newsletter was, because of it’s lengthy volume, released in two parts.  The first part gave a behind-the scenes look at the recent and (ultimately) successful 1,000 foot test of LiftPort’s Robotic Lifter.  As someone who has had his share of project crisis’ and subsequent all-nighters to rescue them, I can only say; “I feel you brother.”  It’s a fine story of perseverance and success.  Part Two of the Newsletter is an update from LiftPort’s CEO Michael Laine, touching on the carbon nanotube factory, finances and other recent LiftPort activities.  The Part One Newsletter can be found here and Part Two here.
