International Space Elevator Consortium Announces New Membership Drive

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA | Posted on April 6th, 2009

Proceeds from membership will be used to further the development of an Elevator to Space, such as funding of research and engaging the public at large. According to ISEC, membership is designed to help provide funding for research necessary to build an Elevator to Space, connect people around the world interested in the project, keep them up to date on its progress and provide the public with ways they can help in the program.

"We are looking to make ISEC the single premier authoritative source on the effort worldwide and a way to encourage people at all levels - teachers, students, hobbyists and enthusiasts as well as scientists and researchers - in participating in its development," said Ted Semon, president of ISEC. "This makes us unique among all Space Elevator organizations."

Several levels of membership are being offered, including standard, student and premium. Membership includes incentives, discounts and member-only activities at ISEC events such as the Space Elevator Conference and Space Elevator games. All members will receive a complimentary subscription to the ISEC E Journal, the authoritative voice on Space Elevator activities worldwide.

"In addition, we're providing unique incentives at each level of membership, with collector's items at the premium levels," said Semon. "These include an author-autographed collector's edition of the 'The New Explorers' CD, as well as presentation copies of the original papers about the Space Elevator signed by their authors, Jerome Pearson and Yuri Artsutanov, the 'Fathers of the Space Elevator Program.'"
