GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A University of North Dakota professor has been awarded a $276,000 federal grant to study asteroids.

Paul Hardersen teaches in the UND department space studies and runs the UND observatory. He says the three-year project should provide information about early physical and chemical conditions in the solar system.

Hardersen will study the asteroids with the help of the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility in Hawaii.
