Space Elevator Games Over for this Year

Well the Space Elevator Games are over and there was no winner in either the Climber (Power Beaming) Competition or the Tether Strength Competition. In the Climber competition the University of Saskatchewan team (USST) came the closest to winning as they actually climbed the ribbon in 58 seconds which was under the one minute requirement however they did not meet all of the requirements to win.

In the Tether competition the Astroaraneae team sponsored by Aerojet based out of Sacramento came the closet and did very well.

By all accounts the competition was very successful. We'll have a complete report within a few days.
