The Space Elevator is closer than you think.

That’s the topic of a free webinar offered June 14-15 by the International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC).

This online seminar will have four short talks on the concept and the current planning and research to build a space elevator for Earth. The webinar will be presented twice over two days so you can pick the best time that works for you.
