The Space Elevator and the Strong Tether Challenge makes the news…

The local (Seattle, Washington) NBC affiliate is KING-TV.  They sent a crew to film Yuri and Jerome’s arrival at Sea-Tac on Thursday and another crew to film events, including the Strong Tether Challenge, at yesterday’s first day of the Space Elevator Conference.

A segment on these topics made both the afternoon and evening news on KING-TV.  This segment has been posted on the web here.  I thought it was a very well done piece; not sensationalistic and with all the facts correct.

We’ve also been mentioned twice on Alan Boyle’s Cosmic Log, here and here.

Cosmic Log is one of my very favorite daily reads – I highly recommend that you subscribe to it.
