In the mines of Minnesota we'll discover how iron ore is extracted and made into steel. Some of that steel is super strong. We'll find out why. Iron weapons revolutionized warfare from the spear, axe, and sword to today's high tech arsenal. We show military-metallurgists as they create and customize the latest weapons and demonstrate their firepower. We'll play with some iron super magnets, and study the biggest iron magnet of all - the earth itself. We'll see how iron oxide, or rust, plays an important role in creating paints for cars and houses, and creating ink for tattoos and even the dollar bill. And then it's off to the Moon and Mars to mine iron in space.
