BALTIMORE (AP) — Johns Hopkins University has launched a new minor in space science and engineering to help students pursue careers in the space industry.

The new minor requires students to choose a space-related theme and build a sequence of five courses and internship around it.

Physics and astronomy professor Charles Bennett, the minor’s co-director, says the themes can range from the search for life on other planets to the design of space missions for remote observations of the Earth and other planets.

The university carries a long tradition of space research. Last year, Hopkins astrophysicist Adam Riess won a Nobel prize for his exploration of dark energy and the accelerating expansion of the universe.
