At the NSS website, Bert Murray, fearless leader of the nascent NSS team, has put out a call for volunteers:
I am leading a team to compete in this year’s Elevator2010 contest. Right now the team consists of seven people. I would like to grow the team to 10 to 20 team members. In particular we need help in laser optics, and embedded controls
If you are interested please shoot me an email.

NSS Space Elevator Chapter
NSS Space Elevator Team
As a member of NSS, it’s tempting for me to sign up. However, I think the independence and objectivity of the Space Elevator Blog requires that I keep this at arms length. If you’re a member of NSS though (or even if you’re not) and you’re looking for a fun project and/or a concrete way to help further the development of a Space Elevator, here’s a great opportunity for you to do so.
