Asteroid Mining Exhibit On Display At Norlin Library

September 24, 2015 – As Earth’s materials are quickly depleting, many companies are looking elsewhere to satisfy the growing demand of rare and non-renewable metals. Extraterrestrial sources such as mineral-rich asteroids are a plausible solution.

University Libraries is pleased to host Asteroid Mining, an installation that was created by students across multiple CU-Boulder STEM departments to educate the campus and the public about the dwindling supply of metals used in everyday technologies and future solutions to meeting the ever-growing demand.

Stop by Norlin Library’s East entrance between September 23rd and October 16th to view the exhibit and learn more about this important and evolving issue. Demos by Kevin Dimond (Co-Lead), Dan Pette (Co-Lead), Jason Ryan, (Presentation Co-Lead), and Ben Shamalov (Presentation Co-Lead) will be held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting at 1 p.m.
