The Colorado School of Mines is jetting light-years away from its initial purpose–training student to mine and to utilize minerals—to concentrate on training future engineers responsible for setting up colonies on the Moon, Mars and wherever no one has gone before. Its students’ roles in space would be essential, since extracting materials once on a planet will be easier than carrying it all there. This may sound like science fiction, but the demand for the School of Mines’ graduates is very real.
To our clients in the mining industry, R&D investment for moon colonization is essential as is space travel. How is your business gearing up for space travel?
