Project Impossible

Project Impossible

Project Impossible is an original series that follows a new generation of epic engineering projects that were considered unthinkable just a few years ago.

Each episode of Project Impossible features multiple stories that illustrate man-made projects that are crucial to our future. These projects include a massive North Sea wind station with 600-foot rotors, a giant sea wall that will protect the ancient city of Venice from rising waters, the world’s largest moveable structure in Chernobyl, and the construction of a fleet of nuclear powered icebreaking ships.

Sinking Cities
Engineers are fighting back, raising some of the biggest sea defenses in the world like the Venice flood barrier; Tsunami Machine; Tokyo underground water diversion tunnels; New Jersey storm defense.
