Elevator Up, Please!

Space travel is dangerous and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Find out about an alternative way to reach orbit that is rapidly becoming feasible and may eventually change how we view our world.


Besides being a fun topic, this presentation accompanied an 8-minute talk that I did for the Ashburn Toastmasters. Most of my audience had never heard of a space elevator before, so I was able to show them something they’d never seen before. This talk also served as Project #8: Visual Aids in the Competent Communicator manual, which is all about giving a speech accompanied by visual aids — a PowerPoint presentation in this case.
