Hot enough for you? How about 200 million degrees!? Experience temperature extremes that only MODERN MARVELS can take you to!
- For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.
- The ultimate celebration and investigation of engineering excellence.
- The mercury is rising through the roof in this thermometer-busting episode!
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.
When molecules get excited, really excited, and the temperature rises from hot to SUPER HOT, very interesting things start to happen.
MODERN MARVELS heats things up with a thorough exploration of the extraordinary realm of the SUPER HOT. From torturing Pyroman, a life-sized mannequin (hopefully) capable of withstanding 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, to watching fusion scientists heat plasma to an unbelievable 200 million degrees Fahrenheit, MODERN MARVELS is cranking up the thermostat.
Consider disastrously malfunctioning household appliances and the possibility of unlimited power in MODERN MARVELS: SUPER HOT.
