More than anything else, in order to make a Space Elevator a reality, we need help from as many people as we can get. If you feel that you would be willing to help out ISEC, here are a few ways that you can give assistance.
The International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC) has formed a History Committee to document the invention of the concept of the Space Elevator and the ever-increasing research and design which is taking place relating to this idea. Dr. Peter Swan, the President of ISEC, puts it this way:
“We are at a point in human history where there is activity to move off planet. As most of the world is limited by cost to orbit, we in the space elevator community believe we can make a difference in the future. However, as we go forward, we should also look back and record the progress that has occurred in the space elevator community. No one else will, until much later; so, we must step up and record our own history now.”
An initial team has already been formed and an aggressive agenda has been set, but ISEC is looking for someone to head up the effort. If you are interested in joining the team and/or heading up the effort, please contact Dr. Swan, ISEC President, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our long term goal is to have ISEC members presenting at as many world wide conventions, symposiums and conferences as we can get to. The only way that we can do that is if we have people who are educated in our plans and are good at presenting to the public. If you think that you have these qualities and want to help, please contact Dr. Peter Swan, ISEC President, at email@example.com.
One of ISEC’s signature projects is the annual ISEC Space Elevator Conference in Seattle, Washington, and we need people who can help. If you live in that area (or even if you don’t) and want to help in the conference setup or execution please contact David Horn, ISEC Space Elevator Conference Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
