Space Elevator Conference 2008

Explore the frontiers of space exploration this summer with a three-day conference on the Space Elevator in Redmond, Washington at the Microsoft Conference Center.
Friday, July 18 thru
Sunday, July 20
Open to the public
The Space Elevator is a radical new way to access space less expensively than possible with chemical rocket technology. The Space Elevator uses a carbon nanotube ribbon that stretches from the surface of the earth to a counterweight in space. Climbers ascend the ribbon, lifting cargo and passengers to earth orbits and launching space ships to distant planets.

The 2008 Space Elevator Conference focuses on all aspects of Space Elevator development, engaging an international audience of scientists, engineers, educators, managers, entrepreneurs, enthusiasts and students. This conference will feature topical discussions in all of the four pillars of Space Elevator development: science/technical, political/social, legal, and economic. Other topics include the space missions and the style of life on Earth that Space Elevator technology will enable.

The conference is sponsored by Microsoft Corporation, Black Line Ascension, and Industrial Nano.
