It’s all around us – so much a part of our lives that we forget it’s there. But try to survive a single day without packaging. This episode of Modern Marvels reveals the astounding technology and ingenuity required to create our packaged world. At a Michigan company that designs water bottles, we’ll show you how engineers find their inspiration from a bell pepper. In New Jersey, the makers of bubble Wrap clue you in on their manufacturing secrets. In Texas, workers conquer the challenge of packaging the world’s largest crane. And you’ll also see how America’s military goods and supplies are packaged and shipped by the United States Transportation Command. Other stories include a new easy to open package that’s the cure for “wrap rage” – and how NASA engineers packed a fragile humanoid robot for a trip into orbit.
