In this issue’s President’s Corner, ISEC President Dr. Peter Swan talks about the importance of Involvement – getting active with ISEC and Space Elevator activities. ISEC has many activities ongoing and we can always use volunteers. If you are interested, please email Dr. Swan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also in this issue, we announce the release of the latest ISEC study; this on Design Considerations for Space Elevator Tether Climbers. The latest in a series of these studies, this one concentrates on how a Tether Climber might operate and is a “must-read” for all those who take an active interest in space elevator technologies.
Dr. Swan also represented ISEC at the recent NSS/ISDC Conference in Los Angeles – more details are shown elsewhere in this eNewsletter.
