Day 2 (Part 10) !

October 21st, 2006

Actually, TurboCrawler made the next attempt and they, too, succeeded in getting all the way to the top.  Their time was 3 minutes and 27 seconds.

So, now we have four teams that have made it all the way to the top; University of Michigan’s MClimber (who was first - 6 minutes and 40 seconds), USST (who have been the fastest so far (58 seconds), LiteWon (2 minutes and 20 seconds on their second attempt) and now TurboCrawler (3 minutes and 27 seconds).

UBC-Snowstar is next up…

    Has anyone discussed using spider silk as the space elevator ribbon? its probably easier to make than the over-hyped nanotubes. Go Deutschland! Win Win Win
