New software comes out every minute. But how often does a new metal spring into action? NASA Glenn Research Center materials research engineer Othmane Benafan found a way to produce a miracle metal in quantities large enough to build an airplane shape-shifting wings. For this potentially revolutionary work, he’s a finalist in this year’s Service to America Medals program. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss.
