I wonder if space elevator bell boys get more than minimum wage. I might apply ;)

Saw this on the New-bot:

and it reminded me of an article that ran in the Electrical Engineering professional magazine a while back. I couldn't find the link the last time this discussion came up here but this time I did.

Maybe it's something my kids will live to see but it's cool stuff anyway.

It's been a very KEWL experiment! My company is part of the NSS team working in the competition. Some of the tracking & laser cooling tech has been simple amazing.

If you'd like to see what's happening today (last day of competition) try: or if you'd like to see alot of the background stuff (and some on the NSS Team) try
A last minute extra funding thing kept us for finishing, we were one of the 4 qualified teams.
