P1: Conferences
P2: {{[jump="http://sesinstitute.org"] Space Exploration 2005}},
Albuquerque, NM, April 3-6 2005
* {{[jump="SEC2005/index.html"] My notes from the conference}}
* I presented a paper on what happens if the space elevator breaks. You can
download a preliminary version
{{[jump="../publications/FateOfABrokenSpaceElevator.pdf"] here}}, or get my
slides from the conference {{[jump="SEC2005/BrokenElevator.ppt"](ppt)}}

Slashdot story}}.
* Non-Equatorial Space Elevators, studying the basic equations in the case
of uniform-stress tethers, presented at the third space elevator
conference.

paper}}. {{[jump="3rd-conference-notes/OffEquator-Talk.pdf"]My talk}}.
* Exponential Tethers for Accelerated Space Elevator Deployment. How you
can build up a space elevator faster if you use exponentially tapered
tethers and spooling buildup methods. This was presented at the third
space elevator conference.
