Great Engineering TV (Machine Design magazine) interview with Dr. Calomino regarding the inflatable re-entry vehicle along with actual live footage from the research cameras during the test flight. NASA continues to excel in developing innovative materials for space (with possible applications on Earth as well in the future). Kudos and continued success to Dr. Calomino and his colleagues at NASA.
