VCR Alert:"Collapse: Failure by Design" on Discovery Channel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
An interestingly titled program “Collapse: Failure by Design" will be shown
on Discovery Channel at 9 am Pacific Time on Friday, April 27th. Covered are
the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the pumping station in Abbeystead Vale and the
Kemper Arena in Kansas City.

They say “Explore the flaws of four structures which failed the test of
integrity - and collapsed. Examine the engineering brilliance of architects
who built a structure that withstood a 7.5 earthquake. “

It may be worth setting your VCR to tape it if you’re stuck in the office
during that time (as most of us probably are.)
