Study space resources at top-ranking institution in the field of mining engineering

                                                        The Colorado School of Mines
                             ( currently listed in the QS World University Rankings by subject
                          as the top institution in the world for mineral and mining engineering)
                                                  has made the following announcement:

                                                   "Mines is planning to launch in 2018
                                  a multi-disciplinary graduate program in Space Resources
                         to offer a Post-Baccalaureate certificate and a Master of Science degree
                         for college graduates and professionals interested in this emerging arena.
                              Qualified students who want to pursue research through a Ph.D.
                                     in collaborating departments at Mines are also sought."

                                (The Colorado School of Mines is obviously not a newcomer
                                                      in the field of space resource studies
                                 as -for example- various publications by Richard E. Gertsch
                                                         like the one of January 1st 1992
                                                               entitled "Asteroid Mining"
                                                                   clearly demonstrate.)
