Conference Carbon Nanotechnology_

EuroSpaceward invites to a 2-days conference entitled

Carbon Nanotechnology and Space Elevator Systems

which will take place from 4 until 5 December 2010 at the Novotel Hotel Kirchberg.

The 4th conference of EuroSpaceward will focus on its first day on how the unique mechanical properties of carbon nanomaterial, especially carbon nanotubes, can be exploited in order to facilitate the space elevator.

International experts will be analyzing amongst others the status quo of growing ultra long nanotubes, considered a prerequisite to fabricate super strong tethers and ultimately the mega cable for a space elevator.

The second day of the conference will be covering new research work on the space elevator system and highlighting climber contests.

The conference is funded by the National Research Fund.

Online registration for the conference as well as complete information about the conference & registration fees are open at
