This weekend, the Japanese will take their first crack at holding a Space Elevator conference (note that this is NOT the same as them actually building a Space Elevator which was erroneously reported in a myriad of places in the mainstream press).
I had planned on attending this conference, but due to some circumstances which are totally beyond bizarre, I’m going to be forced to miss it. I’m hoping to have some news reports emailed to me which I will post as soon as I get them.
If you’re going, I envy you and I have every intention of attending the inevitable 2009 Japan Space Elevator Conference.
So, if you’re already in Japan, and aren’t doing anything special this weekend, this would be a great way to spend your time.
