I just received this from Spaceward’s Ben Shelef:
Most of you probably caught the NOVA segment on the Space Elevator – it was broadcast a while back, but is available online at http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3401/02.html. It is a real nice segment (12 minutes).
On the same topic, Discovery channel will broadcast tomorrow (1/28, 8pm) a 3-hour special presentation about futuristic concepts. The Space Elevator is featured in the 3rd segment: http://dsc.discovery.com/convergence/2057/2057.html
As for next year’s competition, the first team registration deadline is approaching, and the list of teams is growing fast: http://www.elevator2010.org/teams.html
Finally, To those of you asking about dates and location – we’re still working on it, maybe we’ll have some news on the next update.
The Spaceward Crew.
