Description
Engineering successes are impressive, but a simple miscalculation can be catastrophic. This feature examines the toxic waste dump at Love Canal in New York and the Patriot Missiles' failure on the battlefield during Desert Storm, the victim of bad software. It also discusses how on September 11, 2001, World Trade Center Building #7 collapses into a pile of rubble hours after planes topple the Twin Towers, and the details behind Boston's Cocoanut Grove nightclub inferno that killed 400 people. Finally, we see how the science of demolition fails when the "Leaning Tower of Providence" stands its ground.
