From tallow to hyper-sophisticated synthetics, see how the world is literally kept spinning.

  • From the corner garage to the space shuttle, discover the secrets of spin.
  • For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
  • The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.


Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.

From ancient Egyptian chariot wheels to computer hard disks, machinery can't function without lubricants. And in today's technology, there are a mind-boggling number of friction points that must be lubed, and a staggering number of lubricants--petroleum motor oils that keep car engines from burning up, synthetic greases that stay put in the zero gravity of space, and solid coatings that prevent eggs from sticking to a pan.

LUBE JOB reveals how these marvels of chemistry work and peers into the future to see the next generation of low friction, where air takes the place of grease.
