Ken Davidian, the man behind NASA’s Centennial Challenges (including the Space Elevator Games) is scheduled to appear on The Space Show this coming Sunday, February 11th, from 12:00 noon to 1:30pm (Pacific Time).
If you have questions about any aspect of NASA’s support of the Space Elevator Games, and the Centennial Challenges in general, please listen to this show and phone or email in your questions. Dr. David Livingston, who hosts The Space Show, does a fine job in both interviewing his guests and in making sure that all listener questions are addressed.
A mostly unknown story about Ken; as many of you know, I was the “Official Blogger” for the 2006 Space Elevator games. I was not there for the first couple of days of trial runs, but Ken was. He was the one who took the videos and pictures I posted on this blog until I arrived in Las Cruces the day before the competition started. He and I had to figure out the best way of downloading/uploading files and commentary (and quickly learned to love YouTube for videos). Ken is gracious and a pleasure to work with and I look forward to hearing him speak this Sunday.
