• When humans settle on Mars, houses could be 3D-printed
    When the first humans settle on Mars, what if their homes were not built but printed? That's the question being posed in the latest NASA Centennial Challenge, pitting teams from industry and academia to design and 3D-print habitats using materials that can be found on the Martian surface. "The great thing about 3D printing is […]
  • New policy needed to advance space resources industry
    Space mining – the extraction and use of resources from the moon, asteroids and more – once sat firmly in the realm of science fiction.    Now, the first missions to harvest water from the permanently shadowed regions of the moon could be only a decade away. Earlier this month, a pair of Colorado congressmen […]
  • High-res images of Martian ice caps may reveal climate history
    A Colorado School of Mines professor has been awarded funding from NASA to develop the highest-resolution 3D images ever of what lies in the interior of Mars' polar ice caps. "Just like on Earth, the ice caps are witnesses of the climate on Mars — it's a bit like observing tree rings," said Paul Sava, […]
  • Mines student leads top team at Techstars Startup Weekend
    A Colorado School of Mines graduate student will get to pitch his space startup at a major international conference for satellite and aerospace professionals this spring – his team’s prize for winning the Techstars Startup Weekend in Boulder last month.  James Kiousis, a master’s student in the Engineering and Technology Management program, was the leader […]
  • Mines scientists contributing to NASA Mars InSight mission
    The NASA Mars InSight Lander is en route to the Red Planet and two Colorado School of Mines scientists are among those eagerly awaiting its arrival in late November. Paul Morgan, senior geothermal geologist at the Colorado Geological Survey, and Ebru Bozdag, assistant professor of geophysics, are members of the science team for the international […]
  • Mines team wins NASA RASC-AL deep space competition
    A team of Colorado School of Mines students won the grand prize at NASA's collegiate deep space competition, beating out 13 other undergraduate and graduate student teams from around the U.S. and the world. Judges at the 2018 Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concepts - Academic Linkage (RASC-AL) competition awarded Project POSEIDON – short for Polar Sample Extraction […]
  • Two Mines students named Astronaut Scholars
    Two Colorado School of Mines students have been named Astronaut Scholars for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Anthony Nagygyor, a senior majoring in chemical engineering, and Connor Bray, a senior studying engineering physics, will each receive a $10,000 scholarship from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, as well as mentorship and professional development opportunities throughout the year. Created […]
  • Mines students tackle future of space exploration at RASC-AL
    A deep space gateway near the moon could one day serve as a staging point for spacecraft carrying humans to Mars and beyond. NASA proposed the concept last year and two student teams with ties to Colorado School of Mines are now working to develop the best conceptual mission to help NASA take advantage of […]
  • Mines, Lockheed Martin team up for Engineers Week event
        In honor of National Engineers Week, Colorado School of Mines and Lockheed Martin teamed up Feb. 16 for a fun day of activities and industry mentorship to encourage female and minority students underrepresented in the STEM fields to pursue careers in engineering.   Forty Front Range high school students spent the morning getting […]
  • Space resources program approved for fall 2018 launch
      A first-of-its-kind graduate program in space resources will officially lift off at Colorado School of Mines this fall.   Post-baccalaureate certificates, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees will be offered through the unique interdisciplinary program, which aims to prepare scientists, engineers, economists, policymakers and entrepreneurs to responsibly explore, extract and use resources on the Moon, […]
