USST shows off their Climber at Spectrum 2007

Over this past weekend, Clayton Ruszkowski and the USST team demonstrated their¬†climber at Spectrum 2007; “Robots, handmade cars and an elevator to space are all part of Spectrum 2007 being put on by the University of Saskatchewan’s college of engineering.¬† The four-day show gives both engineering students and local companies a chance to display innovative ideas and designs.”

This climber is, of course, the one that turned in the best times at both the 2005 and 2006 Space Elevator Games and just missed being awarded the NASA prize money last year.

Clayton kindly emailed me tonight to let me know that a couple of videos taken at the event demonstrating their lifter are now posted on YouTube.
