On the Japan Space Elevator Association (JSEA) website, they’ve posted photos from the recently held conference. In this post, I’m showing Akira Tsuchida, one of the conference organizers and head of the E-T-C Climber / Power-Beaming team, giving the presentation for the Spaceward organization.
Akira sent me these brief notes on the conference:
“Over 200 people in the audience and 18 speakers. Over 100 items for usage of SE including cute illustration. 10 high (and junior high) schools entered the Space Elevator Lego model race. The Ambassador of Bahrain also joined.
We held the CNT filament seminar on Nov. 14 (Fri) and 20 industries; Sumitomo, Toray, Toyobo, Toyota, etc joined. They were surprised that Cambridge and MIT’s teams were doing such a great job.”
Click on the picture for a larger version or, better yet, visit the JSEA website to see all of the photos that were taken.
And, I’ve heard from Stephen Steiner, the Space Elevator Blog ‘guest correspondant’ who promises me that he will have an additional report or two from the conference in the very near future.
