Available on iTunes, Paramount+, Smithsonian Channel, Prime Video
Former NASA rocket engineer Chad Zdenek gets up close and personal with mega machines to reveal the engineering principles that make them operate. Alongside salvage teams as they take machines such as a 747 jumbo jet and a hovercraft apart piece by piece, Zdenek gets one last chance to decipher how each were built and the mechanics that made it unique. He also explores the impact of the inventions and how they changed history. A power plant's century-old boilers, turbines, condensers and generators, the North Sea's biggest oil rig, and a U.S. aircraft carrier are among other featured projects.
