The Denver Post: Colorado School of Mines engineers turn their talents from the terrestrial to the celestial

"Colorado School of Mines engineers turn their talents from the terrestrial to the celestial" – that's the headline of a recent feature in The Denver Post highlighting Mines' first-of-its-kind space resources graduate program.

Interviewed for the article were Angel Abbud-Madrid, director of the Center for Space Resources at Mines; space resources professors George Sowers and Christopher Dreyer, students Justin Cyrus, Hunter Williams and Ben Thrift; as well as Mines alumnus Paul Anderson '85, director of the Orion program at Lockheed Martin. 

From the article:

“It’s a living-off-the-land approach. For Mines, being a university that has been looking at terrestrial resources for 145 years, it was a natural thing to do it now beyond Earth,” said Angel Abbud-Madrid, the program’s director.
