      Costs not rocketing as Colorado firms embrace space boom

      COLORADO SPRINGS — Sometime in the past decade, the idea of launching private rockets into space for cheap became reality.

      Growing strawberries in space isn't far from reality, says CU student

      Move over Mark Watney. On Mars, astronauts need to grow more than potatoes for food.

      And Heather Hava, a Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado, is working on it. The self-proclaimed "space gardener" has swapped out the fictional Watney for robots; potatoes for strawberries, basil and other greens; a botanist's mind for a horticulturist's — and added big data.

      Boulder County commissioners consider open space drones policy

      Boulder County commissioners on Tuesday are to review proposed guidelines about whether and when drones should be permitted to be launched, flown above, or landed on county-owned open space lands.

      The county staff would have to give its advance consent for such uses.

      Colorado farmers reap $9 million in payments from turbines

      Falling commodity prices have taken a big bite out of Colorado farm and ranch incomes, but lease payments from wind turbines are helping to cushion the blow for some rural landowners.

      Colorado landowners received $9 million in such lease payments last year, part of the $222 million that wind farms paid nationwide, according to the American Wind Energy Association, or AWEA.
