Modern Marvels: More Engineering Disasters
Man built monuments on the earth, and then the sea and sky - but at times he has failed. In the history of architecture and innovation, destruction is didactic: we learn from our mistakes.
Join Modern marvelsÂ® in dissecting some of the largest engineering disasters of all time - from early rocket science to the "The Threser" of the Cold War - and discover how and why these catastrophes occurred. Uncover the tragic flaw of the famous Liberty Ships of WWII, witness the Stockholm and Andrea Doria collision, and learn about the Los Angeles Aqueduct tragedy. Hear the history of the Hartford Civic Center and the details of the Niagara power fiasco.
More Engineering Disasters proves that the human factor is never completely eliminated - and that is through our mistakes that we rise to the heights of modern innovation.
