Space Elevator Competition Underway


[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: The Space Elevator)

(Elevator 2010) Elevator:2010 is designed to address the "social engineering" of the Space Elevator. Taking our cue from the X-prize, solar car races, and various other competitive ventures, we use engineering competitions as a tool to capture mindshare in academia, space enthusiast community, and the general public.

Several teams have taken on the Space Ward's challenge by entering in the Space Elevator Games which consists of teams attempting to build either a light weight super-strong tether or (the more popular) climbing/power mechanism enabling scientists, corporations, and governments to transport materials into space without the need of a rocket.


(Elevator 2010) Our goal is to infect the engineering and science community with our passion for building the Space Elevator, thus making them embassadors to our cause. As the fruits of their efforts take to the air every year, we will have demonstrated the feasibility and sheer simplicity of the Space Elevator concept, and will have brought it closer to reality.

Approximately eight teams have assembled to compete for this September with 20 more signed up for next year. Many of the participants range from prestigious organizations to universities who are not only competing for fame and glory but for $50,000 as well. It will be interesting to see what develops out of these events as building a space elevator could significantly drop the price of space tourism and save companies the hassle of launching satellites into space.
