Modern Marvels explores the ways we enter and exit. We'll take a look at the tallest doors in the world at the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center. We'll visit a company that makes blast doors and bulletproof doors. We'll learn about the surprisingly complex process involved in making home doors, as well as what goes into those commercial entries & exits we use everyday - the revolving door and the turnstile. The Southwestern Foundation for Biomedical Research lets us through the airlock into their level 4 biohazard lab. The Cleveland Federal Reserve doesn't even send people into their vaults; it's robots that go in and out. We'll try some aviation entries and exits - the jetway we use to board a plane, the airplane emergency exit procedures we hope to never use, and ejection seats, the fastest exit anywhere. Then, an engineering firm that designs hidden doors will take us to see a few of their secret entries. Finally, we'll take a quick look at doors that go nowhere, at the Winchester Mystery House.
