PBS is renewing its focus on the topic of engineering in a newly released episode of NOVA.
NOVA: Why Bridges Collapse is available now on DVD and digital. The program opens with the story of the collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genoa, Italy in Aug. 2018. The collapse led to the death of 43 people.
From that point, the program delves into the world of engineering and what may have led to the collapse of the bridge, which had stood for half a century. It compares that bridge’s failure to the collapses over the years of similar structures in West Virginia — the Silver Bridge over the Ohio River — and in Minnesota — the I-35W Bridge — in an effort to find out what can and should be done in the future to ensure such disasters no longer happen.
NOVA: Why Bridges Collapse is retailing for MSRP of $24.99, but can be ordered at a reduced price of $19.99 through PBS’ online store.
