LaserMotive and USST Beam Power Posts

Beam Power team USST has a link to a recent team interview by the Discovery Channel (although I wasn't able to see the interview from here).

Meanwhile, LaserMotive gives thanks. They also present a link to the Spaceward Foundation's ambitious plans for next year's competition. I've posted on this before, too, but it's ambitious enough that I'm doing it again. If you haven't already, take a look at the pictures that profile the balloon-based tether setup dimensions they're considering, and the comparision to this year's dimensions.

They'd like to plan the games for early September 2008. They list a number of interesting potential locations for the games.
