The High Tekerz’s 2016 Space Elevator Race is a challenge open to all ages at the White Center Jubilee Days. In our Space Elevator Race it you must design, build, and compete with a robotic “space elevator” that can climb 20 feet of ribbon cable & carry payload to the top.
A Real Space Elevator can be thought of as a vertical railroad into space. Reusable elevator cars would travel up and down the Tether and carry cargo and humans to and from space. Scale-able, inexpensive and reliable access to space could benefit all of humanity and a Space Elevator would provide this capability. To learn more about space elevators check out our page here.
