The Boston Museum of Science produces a series of podcasts on various technical topics. In the current week’s offering, the Space Elevator games coming up in October are described, along with a “Space Elevator 101″ primer for the uninitiated. Despite the technical errors in the presentation (geosynchronous orbit is defined as 27,000 Kilometers above the earth and all of the rest of their measurements are proportionally incorrect), it’s good to see yet another outlet talking about Space Elevators.
The presentation is linked to here and covers two topics. You can skip the first topic if you like (Scorpions for Cancer Therapy - as a cancer survivor, I found it quite interesting); the Space Elevator Games section begins at 7 minutes, 42 seconds in and lasts for a little over 11 minutes.
