Welcome to the February 2017 Newsletter. Here you will find current technical content from our engineers and new opportunities to get involved. In this edition we cover two recent presentations in England and the UAE by ISEC team members as well as an in-depth look at Earthport infrastructure. We are also reposting an interview with Dr. Bradley Edwards, one of the true pioneers of Space Elevator research. 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!
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 ISECand get involved! A space elevator would truly revolutionize life on earth and open up the solar system and beyond to all of us.
