The June, 2017 issue of the ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter is now available: June 2017 ISEC Space Elevator Newsletter

 

Dear Friend,

 
Welcome to the June 2017 Newsletter. Here you will find current technical content from our engineers and new opportunities to get involved. In this edition we share updates from both Micheal Fitzgerald our Space Elevator Architect and Vern Hall our Earthport Harbor Master. This month, Fitzer discussed strategic approaches to SE architecture and Vern addresses the potential of floating platform technology for offshore SE anchoring. We are also putting out a reminder announcing a call for presentations/papers the Space Elevator Symposium at the British Interplanetary Society in November. President Pete Swan continues to offer up inspiration for progress in the SE world.

As always, thank you for reading and lending your support in the development of Space Elevators. 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 ISEC and get involved! A space elevator would truly revolutionize life on earth and open up the solar system and beyond to all of us.

Please don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also enjoy the photos and videos that we've posted on Flickr and YouTube - all under our Social Identity of ISECdotORG.

Thank you,

Sandy Curth
ISEC Publicity Director
