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.
When catastrophe strikes Skylab, life on earth is threatened by a space station cratering toward earth, and NASA experts use cutting-edge technology to reveal what went wrong and if disaster can be averted.
A detonated building mysteriously refuses to fall, an American ghost town with a deadly legacy, and wind turbines on the brink of disaster are engineering disasters in need of repair, and experts reveal what went wrong and if they can be fixed.
When demolitions don't go as planned, engineers race for cutting-edge solutions to bring down the buildings that refuse to fall, and at work sites in Las Vegas & Russia, experts see if they can succeed where the world's most powerful explosives fail.
When demolitions don't go as planned, engineers race for cutting-edge solutions to bring down buildings that refuse to fall, and at the world-renowned Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan, experts try to succeed when the world's most powerful explosives fail.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
