The 2011 Space Elevator Conference

I’ve gotten way behind in my blogging – there’s a lot to announce, so I’ve got plenty to blog about over the next several weeks.

First up is the 2011 Space Elevator Conference.  This is now ‘officially on’ for August 12-14 (with a public presentation on the night of August 11) at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, Washington – the location of the last several Space Elevator Conferences.

I am on the planning committee and I can tell you that we are way head of last year (and previous years) in planning for the conference – and it promises to be the best one yet.

The Theme of the conference is going to be the 2011 ISEC Theme; “Developing stronger, lighter tethers – 30MYuri or bust!” (more about the theme in an upcoming post).  Because of this, we hope to attract a crowd of nanotube researchers as well as the more ‘traditional’ space elevator people (if you can use the words ‘traditional’ and ‘space elevator’ in the same sentence ?).

More details will be announced soon on the official website of the conference (  If you’re interested in space elevators and/or interested in ultra-strong tether technology, this will be a conference you won’t want to miss.

See you there!

    Yay. It’s about time the focus is on the REAL issue in developing a space elevator. Everything else is just the details. jmo
