The next European Space Elevator Challenge

takes place from September 12th to 15th, 2016 at the Garching Campus of Technical University of Munich in Germany. This year, we are doubling the drive height to 100 m and there will be a new category for highschool teams and beginners.

The application phase is over. Eleven teams have sent in their concepts and are preparing for the competition.

Spectators are welcome on both driving days (September 13th/14th). Check out the program of the competition days!

For any questions, send us an email to euspec@warr.de.

Innovative, efficient, european!

Your challenge: Build a climber, that - based on the concept of a real space elevator - drives autonomously, carries high payloads and manages its energy efficiently.

An elevator to the stars? Is that really possible?

The concept is pretty easy: An elevator drives on an extremely tear-resistant tether at least 36,000 km up to space. At the top of the tether a satellite or a space station is placed as a counterweight. The tether is permanently strained by the balance of the gravitational and centrifugal forces.
