A new way for the Air Force to make sure good ideas don't get lost in the clouds

Einstein once said, if at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it. Well the Air Force Research Laboratory seems to be taking that heart. Air Force technology officials want to make sure that if they hear a good idea to solve a challenge, they’ll be able to bring it to fruition. Through the Lab’s Air and Space Forces Science and Technology Front Door project, officials hope to nurture partnerships with S&T experts to do just that. To learn more, Federal News Network’s Eric White spoke with two of the lab’s science and technology leads, Elizabeth Escamilla and Brian McJilton.
