Origami meets real-world engineering

Twenty five years ago, physicist Robert Lang worked at NASA, where he researched lasers. But in 2001, Lang left his job in order to pursue a passion he's had since childhood: origami. In the origami world, Lang is now a legend, and some of his work has helped pioneer new ways of applying origami principles to complex real-world engineering problems.
