Leading Players in the Space Elevator Movement Join Together to Form New International Consortium

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA | Posted on December 22nd, 2008

A coalition of leaders in the Space Elevator movement today announced the formation of The International Space Elevator Consortium (ISEC), a new independent group designed to promote standards and foster research relating to the construction of an Elevator to Space at the global level.

Founding members of ISEC include the Spaceward Foundation, the Space Elevator Reference, the Space Elevator Blog, EuroSpaceward and the Japan Space Elevator Association. Heading the new organization is Ted Semon of the Space Elevator Blog, who will serve as president.

According to the Consortium, the goal of ISEC is to promote the development, construction and operation of the Space Elevator as a revolutionary and efficient way to space for all humanity. The group will accomplish this through these key areas:

-          Development of a unified plan and roadmap for the Space Elevator and the coordinated assignment of specific research topics
-          Funding of research on technologies relevant to the Space Elevator
-          Development of the international legal framework necessary for the operation of the Space Elevator
-          Global public outreach and central information exchange on Space Elevator activities

"The Space Elevator is a project whose time has come," said Semon. "With the challenges facing today's global economy, it is clear that new industries and new ideas are needed to help our planet in the 21st Century. The Space Elevator can be a key positive contributor, from providing inexpensive nanotechnology material science breakthroughs that will make your car stronger and lighter, to the creation of new industries that offer opportunities for investment and job creation. The International Space Elevator Consortium devoted to its development can make this happen."

ISEC will be unveiling additional plans and details in the upcoming weeks, including a board of directors, technical journals, university and industry relationships, research opportunities and scholarships. Memberships will be available on the individual, corporate, academic and governmental levels.
