In this posting, we ‘meet’ LaserMotive’s Tom Nugent. For most of us in the Space Elevator ‘community’, this is a very familiar name. He was the research director at Liftport and his name was as nearly synonymous with the company as is Michael Laine’s.
I’ve known Tom for some time now and can vouch for the fact that he is a genuine good guy. He’s always eager to help and is always eager to do whatever he can to further the concept of a Space Elevator. He’s a family man and a proud pappa and, in this posting, we learn about his education and experiences.
I look for the LaserMotive team to be one of the favorites this year, and much of that is due to Tom.
