National Space Society (NSS) Space Elevator team to use TRUMPF lasers

March 2nd, 2008

I received this email from Bert Murray, captain of one of the new entries into this year’s Space Elevator Games, the National Space Society (NSS):

Hi Ted,

I thought I would let you know that the NSS team has made a deal with TRUMPF where they are a major partner in our effort. We have also obtain a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) educational, non-profit corporation status. This 501(c)(3) status we believe will make the team more attractive to sponsors

Cheers,

Bert

This makes THREE teams that have reached agreement with TRUMPF to use their lasers for this year’s Climber / Power-Beaming event in the Space Elevator Games; the Kansas City Space Pirates, the Queens Space Engineering Team and now NSS.  Lasermotive and USST also should be entering laser-powered climbers so that’s FIVE laser-powered teams we should see this year.

Only 159 more days…

03 March, 2008 - Correction.  I can’t count - that should have been 190 more days…
