2007 Space Elevator Games – (Entry 11)

Problems for the McGill Space Elevator team.  It seems that they had an accident on the way to the Fairgrounds.  From the photo, it looks like they took a turn too fast and the truck tipped over.  I’m told, however, that something went wrong with one of their wheels and they got hit by a tractor-trailer.  I’m not sure if that is true – I’ll have to wait to talk to them to get the straight skinny.

I received two emails from Cyrus.  The first (accompanied by the picture) reads as follows:

FYI, our wrecked trailer. At least no one was hurt.
We’ll be in Farmington soon!

That’s good news.  Equipment can be replaced, people cannot.  The second email reads as follows:

Ted,I see you’ve renamed us McGillworks. We actually have our own
white-light beam powered system we’re going to attempt first, so we’re
indeed ‘McGill Space Elevator Team’!
See you this morning.Cyrus

So it looks like we’ll see them on Tuesday morning.  Hopefully their equipment was undamaged, or at least repairable…
