Next Episode of Engineering Catastrophes is
Engineering Catastrophes will profile, investigate, analyze, and find solutions for the world's most unbelievable engineering gaffes. From the hilarious to the mind-boggling, from the deadly to the bank-busting, this series showcases some of the most outrageous structural disasters and the genius resolutions to get things back on track. Blunders explored this season include a waterfront building in England that has created a wind tunnel so strong, pedestrians have been blown over; the Carrier Dome in snowy Syracuse that has a soft top roof requiring workers to climb atop with hot water hoses to prevent collapse every time snow falls; a Brazilian highway that is so close to tall buildings that neighborhood residents are concerned about hearing loss.
New science reveals the inside story of the Apollo 13 disaster; using the latest evidence, experts explain what really went wrong and how NASA saved the lives of the three astronauts stranded in space in a life-or-death race against the clock.
A deadly design flaw results in a horrifying rush hour bridge collapse that tragically leaves 13 dead in Minneapolis; using the latest science, experts investigate to reveal what went so catastrophically wrong on one of Minnesota's busiest crossings.
A massive sinkhole swallows millions of dollars of legendary automobiles at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky; expert geologists investigate and reveal how an enormous cave system could remain undetected and poised for catastrophic destruction.
A devastating rail disaster outside a small North Dakota town results in cargo erupting in massive explosions; experts use the latest science to investigate and uncover an engineering flaw poised for catastrophic failure.
