America Abroad: How Drones Are Reshaping the World

 Drones are becoming the must have gadget for everyone from hobbyists to humanitarians. On a global level they're being used to deliver aid to the world's most challenged regions and to find and kill the worlds most wanted terrorists without putting US soldier's lives at risk. In this hour-long program, we look at how drones are revolutionizing the skies, and how this technology has so quickly moved from science fiction to ubiquitous reality.

How Drones Are Reshaping the World will air on Monday, December 14th at 8:00.
