JEDCline's Online Photos for Friends and Family


BACKGROUND: This was my final trip to make the effort to formally do conference technical papers on my space transportation concepts and their potential utilization. The Space Exploration and Science Conference was focused mainly on the new interest in anchored tether space elevators that started in 2002, and was mostly done by folks associated with the Los Alamos National Labs.
