“Elevator reaches for the stars”

In today’s edition of the Edmonton Journal, Keith Gerein writes about the University of Alberta’s entry into this year’s Space Elevator Games.  Money quote from team member Chris Ryziuk in discussing their limited budget:

“We can’t buy our way to victory, but a good design goes a long way.”

This is the first article I’ve seen on this team – good to know that they’re active.  They won’t reveal their Climber’s power source so I guess we’ll just have to wait.  You can check out their team website here.
