GRC Lunar Rover tire replication work featured on NPR

The National Public Radio (NPR) show All Things Considered recently aired a story on the NASA/Goodyear project to replicate the original Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) tires in order to evaluate their utility for the new lunar vehicle missions. This story focused on the need to work with Apollo engineers to retain this technology, in the absence of adequate documentation. NASA GRC’s Vivake Asnani and Ferenc Pavlics of the original LRV team are featured. Read the story, see photos, and listen to the podcast at http://www.wksu.org/news/story/22787 (89.7FM, WKSU)
