Seattle-based competitor Lasermotive has scored prize money in the 2009 Space Elevator Games—a rare feat!

Designed to spur ideas for the development of space elevators, a conceptual carbon-tethered lift from Earth to orbit that would cut the cost of transporting goods to space (including the Moon) dramatically, the competition requires teams to maintain certain average speeds and heights with their test climbers.

For a great intro to the games, see the video below, and keep up on the day-to-day details of the ongoing event via the official site and the Space Elevator Blog!:
