610899_LaserMotive_logo.jpegI received a press release today through Marketwire for LaserMotive announcing they had acquired new sponsors for the 2010 Space Elevator Games.

It was, to say the least, the most exciting of the Space Elevator Games to date, and what's more, NASA now has to write a check in the amount of $900,000 to Lasermotive of Seattle for winning the 1st level prize.

Lasermotive of Seattle on Friday tried to win an additional $1.1 million in prize money after already winning at least a share of the level 1 prize money of $900,000 earlier this week, but their last climb attempt ran into technical issues and they called it quits for the competition.

The Kansas City Space Pirates are the lone remaining team with an opportunity this afternoon to try and win some prize money after the University of Saskatchewan Space Design Team (USST) failed to win anything earlier today.

If the Kansas City Space Pirates can't qualify for prize money on their last attempt then Lasermotive will win the $900,000 level 1 prize outright.
