Thanks for all your comments regarding the photos I posted two days ago. I received some very nice personal messages, and your comments were helpful. The most common theme was that most people didn’t know what they were looking at… so for each of the 26 images, I’ve gone in and written a paragraph or two of explanation. Some of my comments are funny; a few are cynical and frustrated – because, writing about these images now, I have the advantage of hindsight. I know now what I didn’t know then.

About 600 people viewed ALL of those images. I’m grateful. Thank you!
Finally, my friend asked me “Why did you wait so long? Why didn’t you post these two years ago, when they were current?” I responded with: “At the time, I didn’t think this stuff was important. I was focused on getting the thing built, and showing the final product. Now, long after it’s too little, too late, I wish I’d posted this stuff. I have LOTS of this stuff.” I can get into more details about this stage, or other aspects of our development of the Lunar Elevator, or, depending on your response, I can switch gears to the 2nd stage of developing the ‘bot. Let me know what you want.
Take care, mjl
