Description by OLDIES.com:

Successes are impressive, but failures often contribute more to our knowledge. Nowhere is this more evident than in engineering, where a simple miscalculation can prove disastrous, and it is almost impossible to hide the consequences.

MODERN MARVELS returns to this sadly productive territory to examine the following five events: death seeps out of the ground into homes sitting on a toxic waste dump at Love Canal in New York; vaunted Patriot Missiles fail on the battlefield during Desert Storm, the victim of bad software; on September 11, 2001, World Trade Center Building #7 collapses into a pile of rubble hours after the planes topple the Twin Towers; a night of revelry in Boston turns tragic as 400 people perish in the the Cocoanut Grove nightclub inferno; and the science of demolition fails when the ""Leaning Tower of Providence"" stands its ground.
