More Space Elevator Games YouTube Videos

Here are two more videos of the Punkworks team, testing out their equipment prior to last year’s competition.  Incidently, in an earlier post of a Punkworks video, I wondered if the name they posted these videos under, Punkworks2008, indicated that they might be planning on competing again this year.  I contacted them and they’ve replied that they are NOT planning on competing in 2008.  Pity.  We’ve never seen a microwave-powered climber do a successful climb (in either 2006 or 2007) and I don’t know if anyone will try to do one this year either.
