It’s an exciting day at the Space Elevator Games as the University of Saskatchewan Space Design Team (USST) has just posted a 58 second climb meaning that unless someone beats there time and the judges rule that all elements of the team are within the rules then we will have our first NASA Centenial Challenge winner and they will head home with $200k. More to come … Stay tuned.

Editor’s Update: Ben Shelef reports that the judges are confering on one issue that came up with USST’s climb. It seems they needed some assitance on the way down. The decision is pending.
