This case study explains how one space elevator company has used social media as a basis for educational outreach, media relations, community development, and fundraising. It is a working model that encourages participation with other space elevator organizations, public and private space agencies, the philanthropy community, foundations, US government funding agencies, and the general public. We are giving some concrete examples that other space elevator companies can adopt and hopefully team up to strengthen the industry and work together. We’d also like to hear about what tools work well for others and have discussion time budgeted into the presentation slot.
