Space resources program featured on National Public Radio

Colorado School of Mines' first-of-its-kind graduate program in space resources was the subject of a recent story on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. Reporter Dan Boyce spoke with Angel Abbud-Madrid, director of the Center for Space Resources, as well as students Hunter Williams, Liz Scott and Justin Cyrus.

From the story:

Ph.D. student Justin Cyrus has already started a company called Lunar Outpost that he hopes will eventually serve the space mining industry.

"This is going to happen only once in our lifetime," Cyrus said. "This is an opportunity that we have to take."
