The September, 2016 issue of the ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter is now available: September 2016 ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter!
In this issue you will find an in-depth interview with Dr. Bryan Laubscher, a leading developer of structural carbon nanotube technology and long time member of the ISEC team. In addition, our Director for Research, Dr. John Knapman, outlines the idea of a Launch Loop, a space elevator system that could be built with existing high strength materials.
On the systems engineering side of SE design Vern Hall weighs in on Earth Port infrastructure and Fitzer Fitzgerald begins a conversation on SE Architecture in what will be an ongoing Architecture Notes series.
You will also find notices of several new Volunteer positions open (a great way to help this project, even if you're not a scientist or engineer) and a reminder that all ISEC reports, Yearly Reports, CLIMB Journals and the Via Ad Astra Magazine, are now available FOR FREE in electronic (pdf) format.
