This coming Sunday, May 20th, the CBS Sunday Morning show is scheduled to air a segment on the Space Elevator. The reporter researching the show, Mary Lou Teel, has been in touch with several sources (including yours truly), so I’m hopeful that we’ll have a serious, thoughtful treatment of the subject.
You’ll need to check your local listings for what time the show will air in your area. In the Central Time Zone, it is 8:00am.
I’ll have my TIVO running…
In the meantime, here is a story from 2003 that CBS did on the Space Elevator.
Did it air? Like a sucker I slept in and searching for it on their site is a non-starter.
It doesn’t look like it. I did record it, but got a “Chicago Design Special” segment. And, you’re right, their website is not very helpful.
I’ve emailed the reporter that was in contact with me about this segment – hopefully I’ll hear from her tomorrow…
Okay, so I wasn’t the only one who missed it.
I was like, “What is this? Where is my space elevator, and best of all, where is Ted?”
I don’t know what was playing at the time, but it sure had nothing to do with anything 100,000 km up in the night sky.
