We're ready to examine points of failure in ultra slow motion. We'll crash cars and trucks at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to find their breaking points, and to find the breaking points of the crash dummies inside. At Underwriter's Laboratories we'll fire rounds at bullet proof glass until it breaks, and we'll see how long it will take experts to breach a safe using more and more powerful tools. We'll make lithium-ion batteries catch fire and blow up at Sandia National Laboratories - they're essential to the electric cars of the future. And at Arizona State University we'll find the breaking points of steel, concrete - even Kevlar jet engine containment systems.
