carstene (267166) writes "The NASA Centennial Challenge Powered Beaming competition, to develop technology for uses such as a space elevator, or to power a rover in a shadowed creator on the moon, was delayed indefinitely due to trouble setting up the kilometer high race track. It has now had the kinks worked out and is rescheduled for the week of November 2nd. The competition involves using a high power laser to beam power to a robot that climbs a kilometer high cable attached to a helicopter. You can follow the competition at the organizers blog. I'm a member of Lasermotive team, one of the 3 competing. The competition was previously covered on slashdot."
