Update on Space Elevator Games

RLV News has an update on the Space Elevator Games, including a couple links to articles by CNET News and CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) News. The 2nd article is on the 5 Canadian teams, and the article notes that the although the prize purse is greater, the challenge is a lot more difficult (double the height and speed), too. Some teams have a lot more resources than last year (and can build on what they'd achieved then), too, so we can hope for a lot of impressive accomplishments. Lasers are featured in some of the teams' designs.
