Mirror-bright and shaped like a kite, LightSail will orbit Earth on the pressure of sunlight alone. Our Executive Director Lou Friedman joins host Ira Flatow on NPR's Science Friday -- November 13 -- for a live chat about The Planetary Society's exciting new solar sail project. The segment will air on NPR stations across the country at 2:10 - 2:20 pm ET. Check it out!
