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.
