About $63,000 worth of iPhones, iPads and laptops were stolen from the Boulder, Colorado, Apple store early Saturday. In the process, the burglar threw rocks through a custom-made glass door worth about $100,000.
Colorado’s role in Curiosity’s mission to Mars began nearly nine months ago, when NASA’s $2.5 billion machine was sent on its space trajectory aboard a rocket created by United Launch Alliance, which has headquarters in Centennial. Placing the spacecraft on its the correct path was crucial for the spacecraft’s successful landing.
Additionally, Southwest Research Institute’s Boulder office created one of the 10 high-tech science instruments that will collect data related to Mars’ habitability. The mission’s primary goal is to determine past, present, and future elements that either facilitate or inhibit life on the planet.
The institute developed the Radiation Assessment Detector, RAD, which will analyze the characteristics of Mars’ radiation.

Jim Moscou is the chief executive of Sir Richard’s Condom Co. in Boulder, a somewhat irreverent but philanthropic company that was founded in 2009 with a clear mission.
Sir Richard’s vows that for every condom sold, the company will donate another to people in developing countries in an attempt to combat HIV, sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.
The first giveaway — 500,000 condoms — is in progress.
Some homeowners prefer the sprawl of suburban McMansions. Others opt for cozy old bungalows near city centers.
Not too many opt for a 133-square-foot home — you read that correctly — that on first glance looks not much larger than a Great Dane’s doghouse.
But Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller did just that. The Boulder couple built a 7-by-19-foot wooden house whose foundation is a two-axle trailer bed. Last week, they towed it to a 5-acre patch of isolated hillside 20 minutes outside this town, which sits on South Park’s eastern edge.
Could you live in (or share) a space this small?
In Boulder, Obama points to his college loans as he looks to build support among young voters.
Spokesman Bronson Hilliard said CU puts down the fish-based fertilizer around this time every year, but today’s application is no coincidence.
“Everything that we’re doing today is to make it unpleasant to stand or sit or be on Norlin Quad,” he said. “As you can see, it’s very odiferous. It does not smell nice at all.”
The grocer filed documents on Monday registering the business name with the Colorado Secretary of State. According to state records, the grocer expects to begin “transacting business or conducting activities” in Colorado as of April 1.
In a town where 2,400-square-foot houses with finished basements dominate the marketplace, Glenn Grassi is betting the other way.
Oh, sure, his home has all the basics you’d expect — toilet, shower, bed, chair, table, stove, sink, even a hardwood floor.
But when all you’ve got is 84 square feet to work with, certain efficiencies must come into play. Grassi’s bed doubles as a shower, his chair doubles as a commode, and his wood-burning stove doubles as a furnace and cooking surface.
Zeus, an 11-year-old Maine coon cat, had a curious encounter with a young mountain lion. The cats checked each other out — from opposite sides of a sliding-glass door — last week in the Pine Brook Hills area of Boulder. Zeus’ owner said she was busy in the office of her home when she heard a noise and turned to see a young mountain lion on the porch.
