Appropriate Space Access: Dr Pete Swan, ISEC President and renowned space professional, will discuss how space elevators will support the expansion of humanity to Mars and beyond.

Getting to orbit is extremely difficult in both energy and design complexity. Historically, we have been restricted as to what we can take to the mission destination : now that humans have decided to go to the Moon and then on to Mars in an international and government/commercial effort of great magnitude, it is wise to expand our vision.

It would seem that the establishment of a more permanent infrastructure with reusable rockets and permanent space elevators must be developed. This webinar will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this combined architecture. Expanding the space access architecture concept to include space elevators will enable a robust movement off-planet.
