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.
