Humans Explore Space

Space Elevators

When you think of transporting things to space the first thing you think of is a rocket, right? Maddie, a budding astronomer from Montana, found this wonderful page that explains what a Space Elevator is and how it will someday help us get into space much more efficiently than we do today. Many thanks to Maddie for helping us think bigger about space and the planets around us.

Site Upgrade Underway

So you like this new look? I have begun the work of updating this site to look cleaner, make it easier to read, and work much better on mobile devices. Do you like what you see? I'm open to suggestions; email me with ideas!

As I work on the site, you'll go back to the old style pages. Don't worry, all the links will continue to work just fine! You'll be able to follow my progress! Look for an updated Intro to Spreadsheets site soon!
