California is bracing for a fire season exacerbated by a historic drought. But in a state known for innovation as much as its dry weather, UC Berkeley scientists have a new strategy to prevent out-of-control fires: drones. We'll talk to physicist Carl Pennypacker about the drone and sensor technology aimed at curbing the spread of wildfires.

Guests:

Carl Pennypacker, research physicist at the UC Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab; lead coordinator for FUEGO
