BOZEMAN (AP) — A prototype of a lunar mining robot built by Montana State University engineering and computer science students for a NASA competition helped dedicate a new College of Engineering.
The robot dug up symbolic scoops of sand and dignitaries used ceremonial shovels for the dedication.
The college is being funded by a $50 million gift from MSU alumnus Norm Asbjornson.
According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, construction is expected to be completed in 2018.
