We’ll hear about it from Nacer Chahat of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who worked on the helicopter’s antenna and telecommunication system. He chats with NASA’s Chief Scientist Jim Green in this episode of the “Gravity Assist” podcast. Subscribe and listen to the full episode at https://www.nasa.gov/gravityassist.
