Modern Marvels: Gas Tech
In this explosive program, Modern Marvels follows natural gas from wellhead to stove top and traces its use from third century BC China to today's modern appliances. Find out how hydrogen - the most plentiful gas in the universe - may also prove to be the world's most powerful. Learn about the cryogenic world of industrial gases - what they do and where they come from - during a visit to the British Oxygen Company's Braddock Air Separation Plant, where millions of tons of oxygen and nitrogen are frozen. And finally, discover why the U.S. government is storing 36 billion cubic feet of helium at the Bush Dome Helium Reserve in Texas.
