Abstract:

Manhattan Project: At 5:30 a.m., July 16, 1945, scientists and dignitaries awaited the detonation of the first atomic bomb in a desolate area of the New Mexico desert aptly known as Jornada del Muerto - Journey of Death. Dubbed the Manhattan Project, the top-secret undertaking was tackled with unprecedented speed and enormous expense. In this examination, Los Alamos scientists and engineers reveal their trials, triumphs, and dark doubts about building the ultimate weapon of war in the interest of peace.

More engineering disasters: Modern Marvels pores through the rubble of some of the most notable engineering disasters in history and searches for probable causes of the calamities, ranging from engineering errors to arrogance, ego, and plain incompetence. Dramatic footage and photos capture many of these disasters as they occurred, and interviews with engineers detail the subsequent design changes that these accidents have spurred.
