Abstract:

Modern Marvels goes into the hearts of these innovations and the minds of the geniuses behind them. 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.

"World's longest bridge: Since the 1930s, the island nation of Japan has dreamt of linking its many parts together as a whole, but World War II diverted the resources needed to accomplish this. By the 1960s, the dream was slowly moving again toward reality, culminating with the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge, the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world. A marvel of architectonics, the structure stands as a testament to the genius of Asian engineering and as one the the most beautiful bridges 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. Modern Marvels takes a behind-the-scenes look at the ingenious industry and incredible engineering feats that went into building the renowned 27,000-acre Disney World complex"--Container.
