Abstract:

From the history of the sugar industry to the longest bridge in the world to the world's first atom bomb, the series elucidates the ingenuity that gave way to the revelatory inventions and engineering feats that are a part of modern-day life. Monster trucks: From small-town dirt tracks to big-city stadiums, this program examines the history and technology of the 10,000 pound plus monster truck. James Bond gadgets: Whether cinematic super spy James bond is foiling villains in space-age flying machines or eavesdropping on his enemies with ultra-sophisticated spy gear, 007 is always guaranteed to have the most outrageous and wonderfully creative gadgets ever to grace the silver screen. The Manhattan project: 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: Reviews some of the most notable engineering disasters in history and searches for probable causes of the calamities, ranging from eingeering errors to arrogance, ego, and plain incompetence. World's longest bridge: In order to link Japan's many parts together as a whole, the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge was created, the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world. Walt Disney World: From a network of underground tunnels connecting various regions of the park to the space-age propulsion technology of linear synchronous motors, the Disney dynasty has been on the cutting edge of theme park innovation since the opening of its first park in 1955. Candy: Loved by kids and savored by adults, candy is more than just a treat, it's an industry that has evolved from a handmade operation to high-tech mass production. Sugar: Reveals suger at its most raw by taking an extensive tour of a cane sugar plantation on Maui, Hawaii, where it examines the technology behind all of the permutations and many uses of sugar, from candies to pipe tobacco and more.
