Climber runs on:Flat tether Climber weight:6.90 kg Climber, 1.24 kg Payload Climber size:undecided Climber materials:Aluminium Sensors:3-axis acceleration, 3-axis gyroscope, barometer Specials:Climber can adjust press force of wheel itself

Iran Space Elevator Team (IRSET) (no visa granted)

Iran Space Elevator Team (IRSET)
Country:Iran University:Azad and Shahid Chamran
University of Ahvaz
Team members:Mohammad Aramideh, Masoud Aramideh, Mojtaba Akbarzadeh
Climber runs on:Flat tether Climber weight:- Climber size:- Climber materials:-

We saw the subject of a space elevator on the internet. We thought it's an interesting field to research because space elevator system is a new and challenging subject nowadays.

Macedonian Star (cancelled)

Macedonian Star
Country:Macedonia University:South East European University Background:Personal interest and education Team members:Dushko Basheski
Climber runs on:Flat tether Climber weight:5 kg Climber size:1 m x ... x ... Climber materials:Aluminium and plastics Power supply:Electric cells to the battery and rechargeable battery on 10 rings

From point of view of my country is "pioneer" step to the future technology. From point of view of Economy based on my country economy not global, is opening jobs of different kind. From point of view of Association is "my free will" is to form "First Macedonian Space Agency" with your help! From point of view personal dignity Space Elevator is small step for me, but longest for Macedonia and my University SEEU.

Stellar Up-Lift (cancelled)

Stellar Up-Lift
Country:United Kingdom University:University of Brighton Background:Extracurricular Engineering Student Group Team members:Martin Weber, Sam Cozens, Daniel Beales, Oliver Jones, João Miguel
Climber runs on:Flat tether Climber weight:5 kg Climber size:0.5 x 0.3 x 0.2 m Climber materials:Aluminium Engine:A brushless DC motor is connected via a belt drive to one or more rollers

The idea to reduce the cost of space travel and to reduce strains on the astronauts (acceleration can be less) while at the same time having a reduced environmental impact. That as well as the economic possibilities that could be triggered by it.

WARR Space Elevator
