Season Premiere Thursday, October 11 at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel
Humans have been building for more than 10,000 years - we’re engineering experts and yet every year, tales emerge of construction calamities from all over the world. From the extraordinary to the ridiculous, this series, "Engineering Catastrophes," uncovers the epic fails and near misses engineers would rather not talk about.
The series looks at what went wrong, investigates why these building blunders went undiscovered and reveal how they are being fixed. Highlights this season include a San Francisco skyscraper that continues to sink, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and a street in Baltimore that collapsed into a railroad.
