Watch NOVA: Making Stuff Stronger at 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 19 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Have you ever wondered where the materials of the future will come from? This might just be the show for you. In a new four-part series, NOVA explores some of the technology of the future. Some of the newest and most amazing creations are made completely in a lab, while others are discovered out in nature and then replicated. Whether it’s based on shark scales or a spider’s web, the possibilities for new technologies are endless.
Below is a preview of the NOVA’s “Making Stuff” series. Wednesday’s episode focuses on making stuff stronger – like fibers smaller than human hair but stronger than steel.
