    Super Tanker, Season 3 | Episode 1

    Richard Hammond reveals the ingenious engineering required to transport one of the most potentially hazardous cargoes in the world in some of the biggest vessels afloat. The huge ships, bigger than the Titanic, carry enough fuel to heat a city the size of London for about a week - the energy equivalent of 55 Hiroshima atomic bombs. The cargo is chilled to minus 162 C - almost twice the coldest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica - a temperature at which conventional steel fails catastrophically. The liquid cargo could potentially capsize the ships if it sloshed around. To propel these vast high-tech ships engineers call on a 2,000 year-old technology which still packs a huge punch, as Richard discovers in an explosive demonstration. Shipping this potentially volatile cargo efficiently and safely required engineering connections with cutlery, mid-air refuelling, fire trucks, and a principle observed by Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, about the connection between the boiling point of water and atmospheric pressure.

    Super Tanker, Season 3 | Episode 1

    Richard Hammond reveals the ingenious engineering required to transport one of the most potentially hazardous cargoes in the world in some of the biggest vessels afloat. The huge ships, bigger than the Titanic, carry enough fuel to heat a city the size of London for about a week - the energy equivalent of 55 Hiroshima atomic bombs. The cargo is chilled to minus 162 C - almost twice the coldest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica - a temperature at which conventional steel fails catastrophically. The liquid cargo could potentially capsize the ships if it sloshed around. To propel these vast high-tech ships engineers call on a 2,000 year-old technology which still packs a huge punch, as Richard discovers in an explosive demonstration. Shipping this potentially volatile cargo efficiently and safely required engineering connections with cutlery, mid-air refuelling, fire trucks, and a principle observed by Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, about the connection between the boiling point of water and atmospheric pressure.

She also appears to have dead tissue on her toes, which the team thinks could be a result of frostbite. Bill investigates the demands of extreme winter sports to determine a source of the injuries and Natalie spends time in an industrial freezer to learn more about the causes of frostbite. Meanwhile, Dan, a psychologist, runs some tests and determines that the subject is highly self-reliant and independent-her mental toughness has also been tested to the limits. It's Skip Palenik-one of America's top particle experts-who unearths a possible clue when he detects dog hair which steers the team towards dog sledding. But Natalie also makes headway when she analyzes the specific type of water the subject drinks. Ultimately, the team has a lot of answers, but which ones will help?

    Earthquake Bridge, Season 3 | Episode 2

    Richard Hammond reveals how engineers made one of the longest bridges in the world earthquake-proof. Building a structure 2.5 kilometers long in water 65 meters deep was almost the least of the engineering challenges of bridging the Gulf of Corinth in Greece. The construction would cross one of the most active seismic zones in Europe. Protecting it meant stopping the soft silt and clay of the seabed from turning to quicksand, preventing the bridge from toppling over, and restraining the road deck so it doesn't buckle or smash against the piers when a tremor unleashes massive shocks. Richard demonstrates the challenges with a series of purpose-built earthquake machines and then tests the principles deployed in the ingenious designs - many unique - which keep the bridge standing tall. They include the biggest dampers in the world which safely passed a real test in a 6.5 'quake in June 2008. Earthquake protection left the bridge potentially vulnerable to other natural hazards - the strong winds which funnel through the Gulf of Corinth and the unlikely threat posed by light winds and gentle rain. Defying disaster called for solutions inspired by fragrant Indian incense, the ring-pull in a soda can, a toboggan, the hammock, and some shiny steel chimneys. The result, completed just in time for the 2004 Athens Olympics, realized a century-old dream of connecting two towns over 400 kilometers apart by land, but separated by a mere two kilometers of water.

He's quite fit, but technically obese, and has a huge scar across his back. They think he's a power lifter, so Bill looks into power lifter training regimens before heading off and following a hunch that he's a circus strongman-it turns out he's neither. Meanwhile, Natalie and a trauma surgeon try to figure out how he got his scar and Dan runs a psych profile and determines that the subject is courageous and extremely self-confident. The pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place when leading trace expert Skip Palenik finds two key substances on the subject's person-the first, a grain of pollen that's native to Arizona or Utah; and the second, a greasy mixture of Vaseline and lanolin, which is found to be used by open-water swimmers. They catch up to the accented, world-record-holding open-water swimmer at Lake Powell. Case closed.
