Engineering Disasters COMPLETE S01
Spun off from Modern Marvels, Engineering Disasters spotlights what happens when human error and the right circumstances conspire to create major disasters and tragedies.
Throughout history some of mankind’s proudest moments have come at the hands of its engineers. But error is inevitable in all human endeavours and when the undertakings are engineering feats of enormous proportions, the smallest mistakes may have devastating consequences. An engineering disaster involving a passenger jet can jeopardise hundreds of innocent people. And if a nuclear or chemical plant is involved, it can mean death for thousands. For the first time in history, engineers now have the power to wipe out entire cities, by mistake.
