Will jet sweep be the play the Rams use to win the Super Bowl?

In the third quarter of an otherwise forgettable game against Washington in Dec. 2014, Rams quarterback Shaun Hill tapped his foot, and Tavon Austin took off down the line with a full head of steam. When a sprinting Austin reached the inside shoulder of the Rams left tackle, Hill snapped the ball, turning just in time to hand it off to his diminutive slot receiver. As Austin bolted right, the rest of the Rams offense went left, pulling the Washington defense with them for just a split-second. It...

University debuts advanced degree program for asteroid mining

The Colorado School of Mines last week began its inaugural classes in the world’s first advanced degree program in “Space Resources.” If you’re interested in busting rocks in space for fun and profit, this is the school for you. There aren’t any actual mining facilities in space yet, but don’t let that stop you from getting a jump on the industry. According to some experts, we’re less than a decade away from a global rush on asteroids. And the companies set on profiting from resource extraction ...

Ice may lurk on the moon's surface in hundreds of locations — and it could be the 'first step in building a space economy'

Ice may be exposed at hundreds of locations on the surface of the moon, a new study suggests. This surface water appears to be trapped in shadowed craters at the lunar poles. Robotic or human missions could harvest lunar ice and turn it into fuel for spacecraft. However, engineers who study space mining say we need to send rovers into craters to find out how wide and deep the ice deposits go. Shadowy craters near the moon's poles may hide untold reserves of ice — an incredibly precious resou...

Ice may exist on the moon's surface at hundreds of locations — and that could be very good news for colonizing space

A new study suggests there are hundreds of spots where ice may be exposed on the surface of the moon. This surface ice appears to be trapped in shadowed craters at the lunar poles. Human or robotic missions could harvest such water and turn it into fuel for spacecraft.

Robots would prefer you to be rude

We have a tendency to beat around the bush when we talk to each other. We use extra words, phrases, and non-literal statements just to be polite. But to most robots this is nothing more than “code bloat” in the form of useless language. If you’ve been called an impolite jerk your entire life, maybe you’re just a better robot than most people. Researchers from from the Colorado School of Mines and Tufts University recently conducted a series of experiments involving human-machine interactions. Th...

"But some who have observed or trained once-recalcitrant men cite small successes in changing perceptions about the nature of 'male' jobs."

"Ellen Bravo, a director of Family Values at Work, found that male firefighters in Kansas City, Mo., had adapted to changes they once dismissed as unmanly, such as wearing masks to protect against lung cancer or talking about grief after witnessing death and suffering. Jessica Smith, an associate professor at the Colorado School of Mines, studied the successful experience of women in a Wyoming mine in the 2000s during a time of hiring expansion, when women were not perceived as taking jobs from ...

Non-toxic alternative for next-generation solar cells

The team of researchers, from the University of Cambridge and the United States, have used theoretical and experimental methods to show how bismuth – the so-called “green element” which sits next to lead on the periodic table, could be used in low-cost solar cells. Their results, reported in the journal Advanced Materials, suggest that solar cells incorporating bismuth can replicate the properties that enable the exceptional properties of lead-based solar cells, but without the same toxici...

Colorado School of Mines grad, now a CEO, on how the energy world has changed

John Christmann IV — a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines — became the CEO and president of Houston-based Apache Corp. in January 2015 — not a time many in the industry would have called a high point. In fact, it was a particularly low place for the energy industry and exploration and production companies. Apache had just announced a round of job cuts and a number of large divestments when its then-CEO, Steven Farris, retired suddenly, leaving Christmann to take over in a challenging… ...
