The next generation…

One of the most interesting people at this year’s Space Elevator Games was young Danny Leafblad, a member of the Kansas City Space Pirates team.  He’s one of those kids that’s scary-smart; he can probably do anything he puts his mind to.

As a tribute to him, as I think he’s an excellent representative of the next generation, the generation that will probably be the first to reap the full benefits of a Space Elevator, I’ve put together a short video about him (it’s my first effort in the homemade video field, so please be gentle with your criticism)…

Here’s to you Danny – please figure out a way to get this thing built in the next 10-15 years so I can take a ride on it…
