Feagler & Friends: Putting Space Technology on Wheels

NASA hopes to put space-age ideas on wheels. Glenn Research Center held a workshop this week for automotive experts showing NASA-developed materials and industrial processes that could be put to work in the car industry to save weight, time and money. Among materials they’ll demonstrate is a lightweight metal alloy that ‘remembers’ its shape and returns to it when damaged.

On this segment of the WVIZ/PBS ideastream program Feagler & Friends, Robert J. Shaw, PhD, director, Office of Technology, Partnership & Planning, NASA Glenn Research Center; and Paul Bartolotta, aerospace engineer speak with Dick Feagler.
