Bowness Space Elevator

Felt the urge to be an explorer today. Attempted to visit the link provided; however, the link appears non-functional. Teleported to the base of Bowness Space Elevator. Read all the panels, and like a true “curious george”, investigated many of the teleport links. George capped an oil spill on the bottom of the ocean floor and learned about mangrove ecosystems. George explored the control room at the base of the elevator but could not obtain control of the computers. George gained information on the future of space elevators and NASA’s intended future use. George rode the elevator into space. The view of the orbiting station/satellite and Earth was fascinating. Again, George explored rooms, control room and the view deck.

The possibility of use by other educators or scientists as a meeting point or point of embarkation was not lost on George. Would like to gather the information from the link should that become available.Bowness Space Elevator_001

One Response to Bowness Space Elevator

  1. Dalai appreciate the third person narrative.

    Thank you for the update on the link. They must have taken it down. I will look into that and let you know what I come up with. It’s nice to be able to explore such a thoughtfully designed space. That’s one of the things we strive to create a well-designed experience. Depth, artistry, and scale are hallmarks of some of the best spaces in virtual worlds like Second Life.
