Modern Marvels: Engineering Disasters 15 DVD


Examine the Mississippi River disaster that was once the worst in maritime history. The popular MODERN MARVELS series analyzes spectacular failures and overlooked accidents.Computer graphics, location footage and expert analysis reveal what went wrong.Features commentary from NTSB investigators and structural engineers. Successes are impressive, but failures often contribute more to our knowledge. Nowhere is this more evident than in engineering, where a simple miscalculation can prove disastrous, and it is almost impossible to hide the consequences. MODERN MARVELSĀ® returns to this sadly productive territory to examine the following five events: a series of construction errors causes a devastating flood that brings Chicago to a standstill; a deadly accident traps hundreds in a smoke-filled Alpine tunnel without ventilation; three boilers explode on a Mississippi riverboat, killing thousands; two buildings, halfway around the world from each other, collapse from the same type of shoddy construction methods--14 years apart; and a cockpit warning system malfunctions, causing a fiery, fatal crash before takeoff.
