Space Elevator Competition
The Spaceward Foundation which is overseeing the Space Elevator Competition has issued a progress update.

“We now have 7 teams that have climber hardware and are intending to show up for the 2005 competition. The competition date has been pushed back 3 weeks – we will start accepting hardware on the original Sept 30th date, but will spend 3 weeks debugging both our infrastructure and the team’s hardware – this is the first time this hardware is being brought together, and we expect integration to require some extra time and attention.”
