Summary
This program sweeps through nearly a thousand years of history to tell troubling and sometimes tragic tales of failure. Experts reveal why the famous tower of Pisa took on its characteristic tilt. Archival news footage revisits the 1961 disaster at an experimental nuclear reactor in Idaho Falls, where three men lost their lives to the explosion of an improperly designed core. And veterans of the Soviet space program recall one of its darkest moments, when a crew of three cosmonauts returning from a triumphant stay aboard the Salyut space station were killed. These and other stories show how easy it is for small errors to be transformed into tragedy
