In the latest posting on the LaserMotive blog, a series of pictures are displayed, showing distances of 200m, 400m, 600m, 800m and 1,000m (1km) and gives a very good idea of how far the Climbers will have to travel, a full kilometer, in this year’s Space Elevator Games in order to have a chance at the prize.
Keep in mind that last year, the distance to be travelled was only half the distance shown in the first picture, only 100m.
Great post, LaserMotive – thanks!
On the subject of the upcoming games, readers may have noticed that the timing for these has been changed yet again. As noted on this blog’s list of Upcoming Events, the Games are now scheduled for some time in November. We’re still not sure where they’re going to be yet, either. I know, I know, we all want to know (especially the teams).
We’re all waiting as fast as we can…
