There are only 7 more days until the beginning of the 2008 Space Elevator Conference. If you haven’t made your reservations yet, it’s not too late to do so (but you better hurry).
In addition to the program, listed on the conference website, steps will be taken to start a sustained, international effort to lobby and coordinate efforts for the building of a Space Elevator. Attempts have been made in the past to begin a sustained ‘Four Pillars’ program for the development of a Space Elevator, but without much success. We have reasons to hope and believe that this year will be different. In addition to just the general feeling that this is a good idea, we now have international resources (EuroSpaceward and the Japan Space Elevator Association) which weren’t there before. And, the proceedings of this conference will be published, something which will be marked as an important starting point for this effort.
So, if you’re truly interested in making a Space Elevator ‘happen’, now is the time to get involved. We would love to have you…
