Dear Fellow Space Elevator enthusiast,
The team is always on the search for news and science articles that mention the Space Elevator and our Technical lead, Peter Robinson found this doozy:
The part of the article that pertains to Space Elevators was when NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine was asked by Bill Foster during a hearing why NASA isn’t funding the Space Elevator to get to space.
That’s what WE want to know!
In this issue:
President Swan calls for testing materials and technologies to prepare for the next phase of the development of the Space Elevator, and announces our Summer Internship Program.
Our Space Elevator Conference Chair, David Horn, gives the official announcement of the conference dates and location and gives a call for technical papers.
And our Chief Architect, Michael Fitzgerald, talks about the topic that always comes up when talking about putting a Space Elevator–how do you avoid space debris?
