The Spaceward Foundation is sponsoring the Space Elevator Games later this month. Founder and engineeer Ben Shelef talks about this first ever competition, and the outlook for a 60,000 mile ribbon of superstrong material leading directly to space. Emily Lakdawalla tells us where to look for life in our solar system, while Bruce Betts weaves the Bayeux Tapestry into this week's What's Up segment.
