Dear Fellow Space Elevator enthusiast,
Last month, the National Space Society held their annual International Space Development conference in Washington, D. C. The Space Elevator Track at that convention was three hours and well-represented by ISEC! Pete Swan tells us more about his experiences, below.
August 16th is a very important date…it’s my birthday! And besides that, it’s the first day of our annual conference. Have you purchased tickets, yet? If you haven’t, or just want to know more, head to our website: https://www.isec.org/sec/.
If you don’t want to attend the 3-day technical program but would like to learn more about Space Elevators, in general, consider coming to the Family Science Fest held on Saturday. There will be a climber competition in the Great Gallery and two general introductory lectures held in the The Charles Simonyi Space Gallery, a short walk via overpass, across the street. There, you will sit next to the actual full-scale mockup of the Space Elevator that was built for the Johnson Space Center! The details for the Family Science Fest are here: https://isec.org/family-science-fest-2019-space-elevator-conference.
If you would like to know more about the climber competition, see the article describing it, below.
I know I will be there, and I hope to see you there!
