And so the Space Elevator Games Media Frenzy Begins

With the Space Elevator Games only a week away the media frenzy has begun. This bodes well for the community as we should see some excellent coverage the next week and half which will help further the message that building a space elevator is a viable option for access to space.

Being from Vancouver, Canada I could not help but notice that the Snowstar team from the University of British Columbia got a prominent article in today's Vancouver Sun and was also featured over at the CBC along with Canadian rivals Punkworks from Toronto and the University of Saskatchewan.

I've also received several media requests from Europe. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the games next week but both Brad and Bryan will be there. If you are there and want to submit some pictures, video and your thoughts just send them to me and I'll be happy to post them and that includes all you bloggers who can blog using your Blackberry's or smart phones.

This is getting exciting.
