The January, 2017 issue of the ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter is now available: January 2017 ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter
Welcome to the January 2017 Newsletter! Here you will find current technical content from our engineers and new opportunities to get involved. Heading into 2017, we are excited to announce the official beginning of our internship program along with various other ways for young people to get involved in space research through the NSS and NASA. As always, thank you for reading!
If you missed the news last month, our pilot internship program last Summer was a success and we are now offering opportunities for Summer 2017. More specifically, we are offering two paid positions this summer for undergraduate students. This program is aimed at Freshman and Sophomores in Aerospace fields, but all are welcome to apply. The program is explained in detail below. We look forward to your applications!
The call for papers for the 2017 International Astronautical Congress is still open and ISEC leadership will be guiding the Space Elevator focused sessions of the conference in October.
This month Architecture Chair Micheal Fitzgerald, continues his series on SE Architecture with a thorough explanation of the GEO node and all that has to happen at the space end of a Space Elevator while Research Chair John Knapman discusses proper research approaches for the SE. Don't miss it!
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.
