Rate this:
This episode of Modern Marvels examines points of failure in ultraslow motion. We examine the effects of crashes on cars, trucks, and the crash-test dummies inside. Underwriter's Laboratories fire rounds at bulletproof glass until it breaks, and we discover how long it will take experts to breach a safe using more and more powerful tools. Arizona State University experiments to find the breaking points of steel, concrete, and even Kevlar jet engine containment systems.
