In order to accommodate some additional teams, the date of the first annual European Space Elevator Challenge (EuSEC) has been moved from June to August 19-21 (with a backup date of August 26-28).
Several teams have signed up including entries from England, Germany, Japan, Macedonia and Iran! In addition to the Games themselves, there will be other presentations at the competition including;
- 30m long Carbon Nanotube rope presented by the Cambridge Carbon Nanotechnology Society
- The SpaceShaft” presented by Nelson Semino
- An alternative concept for the Space Elevator presented by Anulekh Chauhan via Skype
A 30 m long Carbon Nanotube rope? I hope they take pictures! Anyway, this sounds like it is shaping up to be an awesome event. More details about it can be found on their website.
