The May, 2017 issue of the ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter is now available: May 2017 ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter

 
 
Dear Friend,
 
Welcome to the May 2017 Newsletter. Here you will find current technical content from our engineers and new opportunities to get involved. In this edition we share an extensive interview with Space Elevator Enthusiast Micheal Schaeffer and the final piece of Micheal Fitzgerald's three part analysis of "Sequences" in the SE system. We are also excited to announce a call for presentations/papers the Space Elevator Symposium at the British Interplanetary Society in November. President Pete Swan continues to offer up inspiration for progress in the SE world. As always, thank you for reading and lending your support in the development of Space Elevators!

 As you may have noticed we have a new logo! While it is not a perfectly to scale representation of the current standard SE model, we believe it offers a more accurate, exciting and inspiring vision of a Space Elevator future than our previous logo. Please let us know what you think by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.Thank you.

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 by May 15th! If you have yet to apply, now is the time!

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.
 
Please don't forget to LIKE US on Facebook, FOLLOW US on Twitter and enjoy the photos and videos that we've posted on Flickr and YouTube - all under our Social Identity of ISECdotORG.
 
Thank you,

Sandy Curth
ISEC Publicity Director
