    My 11 year old son and I just finished watching online this wonderful segment on the space elevator competition. This was such a timely episode for us as we (I was the coach) just completed our first year of competing in the First Lego League robotics competition. One of the Lego robotics challenge involved programming their NXT robot to active a Lego Space Elevator. Nanotechnology was the 2006 Challenge Research Theme. We learned lots about carbon nanotubes and actually constructed plastic bucky balls.
    This segment was a great tie-in to our recent science experiences. The New Mexico competition looked like such a fun event. Thanks for compiling this worthwhile show!
