On November 21st, the Japan Space Elevator Association (JSEA) held another of their LASER (Lego bricks Activity and Space Elevator Race) competitions. Mr. Hideyuki Natsume, a Director at JSEA, informs me that 36 teams with more than 100 people participated and that the competition theme was “payload-juice can”.
The LASER website is here and they have posted several photos on Picasweb which you can access here. The event looked like a lot of fun and I’m sure all the contestants and spectators had a great time. JSEA is to be again congratulated on holding another successful event!
And, incidentally, their annual JSETEC conference (which I posted about earlier) should be underway as I write this. I look forward to being able to post details about this conference when I receive them.
