The next European Space Elevator Challenge

takes place from September 12th to 16th 2016 at Technische Universität München 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.

You can find a summary of the rules at Requirements. The detailed rules and regulations handbook can be found at Downloads.

We are looking forward to many entrants! You can find the application form at Application.

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.
