The November, 2016 issue of the ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter is now available: November 2016 ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter!
Welcome to the November 2016 Newsletter. Here you will find current technical content from our engineers and new opportunities to get involved. I am particularly excited to announce the official start of our Summer internship program. After a successful trial run with one intern in Summer 2016 we will be adding two paid interns to our staff this upcoming Summer. More specifically, these interns will be college Freshman or Sophomores in an Aerospace field. Please stay tuned to ISEC.org as applications will be coming online shortly!
On the systems engineering side of SE design, Vern Hall presents an overview of autonomous shipping for the Earth Port and our Architecture Chair, Micheal Fitzgerald, continues his series on SE Architecture with a continuation of last month's commentary about the business side of the SE.
As always, you will find notices of several open volunteer positions (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 at ISEC.org. There is plenty of work to be done!
If you want to help us make a space elevator happen, JOIN ISEC and get involved! A space elevator would truly revolutionize life on earth and open up the solar system and beyond to all of us.
