Modern Marvels: Engineering Disasters 8 DVD


A Connecticut bridge collapse, a famous flood and the death of a golfer highlight the latest episode of the popular MODERN MARVELS sub-series. 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. Join MODERN MARVELSĀ® for a devastating hour as we delve into complex and often-tragic failures that have shaped our world. Five dramatic events unfold: the 1983 collapse of New England's Mianus Bridge; the sinking of the Ocean Ranger offshore oil rig in 1982; the crash of a Learjet 35 carrying pro golfer Payne Stewart; the 19th-century failure of South Fork Dam that resulted in the flooding of Johnstown, Pennsylvania; and the 1988 PEPCON jet fuel plant explosion.
