In an earlier post, I wrote about ISEC awarding an Honorable Mention for the Artsutanov Prize.
Based on a re-review of all of the papers submitted for the competition, ISEC is very pleased to award a second Honorable Mention for the Artsutanov Prize, this to Karen Ghazaryan, S.A. Ambartsumian and M.V. Belubekyan for their paper “Optimal Design of the Space Elevator Tether“. Karen attended the 2010 Space Elevator conference and presented this paper.
Karen has made presentations at the last several Space Elevator Conferences and we sincerely thank him for his continuing efforts to advance our understanding in this field. Congratulations to Mr.’s Ghazaryan, Ambartsumian and Belubkeyan on their award!
