The Service to America Medals honor federal employees who go above and beyond their job descriptions to serve the public. For the next few months, Federal News Radio will be speaking to many of the finalists. On today's Federal Drive, Tom Temin and Emily Kopp spoke with Miguel Roman, a research scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. His studies of thermal infrared imaging technology have helped authorities detect and fight wildfires. He's also used satellite imagery to quantify electricity use worldwide and map the impact of storms on the power grid. View photos and read more about each of this year's 33 finalists.
