News & Media
In addition to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr the progress of construction of the Einstein-Elevator will be shown here.
german/deutsch: Zusätzlich zu Facebook, Twitter, Instagram und Flickr wird der Aufbau des Einstein-Elevators hier gezeigt. Die Texte dazu gibt es nur in englisch.
Some general information will be prepared as PowerPoint-Slides.
This section is coming soon...

Einstein-Elevator in Wikipedia
Installing the Drive Carts: The last two days we mounted the two carts to its rails with a great team.
The work platform has been installed: now the cabling starts and additional devices will be installed.
The steel framework is finished: the parts of the outer and inner tower are mounted and aligned.
Inner and outer steel frame reach the final height: Now you can imagine what it will look like.
Construction of the Einstein-Elevator starts: First parts of the steel frame are mounted.
The construction work continues: Ready to install the inner steelwork e.g. stairways, levels and the Einstein-Elevator itself.
A big puzzle: The Einstein-Elevator is welded from thousands of metal parts.
Externally finished: The facade of the tower is mounted and the scaffold is now being dismantled.
The foundation for minimal residual acceleration: the individual ring foundations for the two intertwining towers.
Visualization of the concept: 3D-printed model of the Einstein-Elevator with moveable gondola.

The building is waiting for input: the 40 m high tower is currently empty.
The Einstein-Elevator materializes: the 430 m steel tube has been delivered.
The Einstein-Elevator evolves: first draft to final concept.
A fascinating project grows. With our facebook-, twitter-, instagram- and flickr-account in addition to the "news & media" section of our homepage we will keep you informed about the progress.
