Space Elevator Games go into extra innings

The Space Elevator Games, comprised of the tether and beamed power competitions, was scheduled to end Saturday afternoon as the X Prize Cup wound down. However, because of scheduling and logistical issues, the event has been extended. The tether competition took place Saturday night at the county fairgrounds, where the climber qualifications took place earlier in the week; none of the four competitors won any prize money. This morning two teams that use microwaves to power their climbers will make a shot at winning the beamed power competition. They could not make their attempts at the airport during the Cup since their microwave rectennas were prohibited from the airport grounds.
