Conan O’Brien: Space Elevator Interview (News) May 6, 2008

Posted by Nick Azer in Carbon Nanotubes, Current News, Space Elevator, Youtube.

This past Friday (May 2nd), Brian Turner of the Kansas City Space Pirates was a guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, to be interviewed about the Space Elevator concept (a concept covered here just the other day).

Here’s the interview via Youtube, and the full episode is actually also available from the official site.

The interview’s very funny, as you might expect from Conan, and there’s some great stuff in there about the plan for space elevator(s), e.g. how many and when. A great, short layman’s-terms rundown of what’s up in the world of the space elevator.

I think this makes Brian Turner/the Space Pirates something of geek heroes, as well :)
