It has been a long time since I wrote a blog entry here. Long story short, we had a successful event that led to some interesting things. One of our attendees, Tim Chrisman, liked that event so much that he decided to contract LiftPort to run a series of events called “Blue Marble Week”. He is also a huge fan of the space elevator and he is trying to push a congressional bill to support the creation of space infrastructure. The main topic for these events is “how space development (in different ways) can improve life on Earth”. This will definitely be a challenge, but I think we should be just fine considering the huge network of important people that Michael has.
The office now is quieter because Byungik finished his internship and left for South Korea. It was nice to work with him and we will miss him (Good luck with your future plans, Byungik!). I am happy to say that none of us got sick until now. One of the many factors to consider my stay in the United States, a successful one, is to not get sick. And I am close to accomplishing that goal, so good luck to me too.
I will spend the end of the year festivities here in Tacoma. Apparently, Michael has plans for it, so I will not spend it alone as I initially thought. I'm glad Gwen and him are generous people.
Circumstances for LiftPort have changed a lot during 2020, we switched gears and priorities a lot, and at the end of this year, I feel that all of us contributed a little to improve the situation. The future looks a lot better than I initially thought. It is a little ironic that 2020 was a good year for us, considering what’s going on outside of our bubble. Hopefully, we can keep this streak for next year, and someday build the space elevator!
