Yet more views of the Competition Site

Ben Shelef, CEO of Spaceward, the organization that is putting on the Space Elevator Games, has come up with two additional mockup views of the venue for this year’s Space Elevator Games.  Ben tells me that these views are to scale.

If this is true (and I’m sure it is), it is mind-boggling how high the Climbers are actually going to have to go this year – 100 meters is a long way up there.

If you plan on attending the Games this year, make sure you bring your binoculars or ensure that your camera has a decent telephoto lens!

Another view of the competition site

Following in the footsteps of the Kansas City Space Pirates’ Brian Turner, who created an animated view of the upcoming Space Elevator Games Climber / Power-Beaming competition, Tom Nugent of LaserMotive has come up with his own version.  He talks about it in LaserMotive’s latest blog post, here.
