Get an inside look at the planning and engineering behind creating some of the greatest buildings and machines ever made. MegaStructures takes you inside the superstructures and all the inner workings that muscle together to make the structures function as a whole. Megastructures are all around us; skyscrapers in big cities, subway trains years ahead of their time. Discover these and more!
MegaStructures brings you the newest nuclear sub to prowl the oceans, the USS Virginia. The first major redesign of nuclear subs since the end of the Cold War, the USS Virginia is the most tricked-out underwater warship in the US Navy. Built to answer America's military needs for the 21st century, this sub features a number of forward-looking advances in naval technology. We'll take a hard look at how the USS Virginia came to be as we talk with designers and engineers about the challenges that arose in creating a new class of submarine. We'll also follow the newly commissioned USS Virginia as the Navy brings this marine megastructure up to speed. This show promises to be an exciting ride aboard the newest addition to the Navy's nuclear-powered arsenal.
