Summary
Chronicles over 40 of history's most devastating engineering failures, including the Exxon Valdez disaster to a nuclear meltdown at a secret governmetn facility, to the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina. Uses state-of-the-art special effects to investigate not only what went wrong, but what can be learned from these disasters. The catastrophes recounted led to the creation of Superfund sites for the cleanup of toxic waste, improved safety standards for cars, planes, and ships; and new techniques for building roads, bridges, and buildings that will withstand nature's most destructive forces

Engineering disasters 16: travels the globe to uncover the stories behind Mexico's exploding streets, an Italian mining disaster, an oil tanker run aground of the coast of England, and a small Texas town where children are forever entombed in the ruins of their school -- Engineering disasters 17: A crack in a California street transforms into a gigantic sinkhole, a fatal roof collapse at Charles de Gaulle International Airport causes chaos, and the flaw behind the plane crash that killed Knute Rockne is examined-- Engineering disasters 18: takes a look at the political pressures that put soldiers at risk in the case of the Army's Stryker Light Armored Vehicle, development demands that have forever altered California's landlocked Salton Sea, a labor-saving device which exposed consumers to dangerous levels of radiation, and the deaths of three men during the building of the Milwaulee Brewers' stadium
