When American settlers took to the wild West to build homesteads and search for gold, they needed good old-fashioned ingenuity (and a helping of bravado) to overcome the challenges set forth by the elements. While many of their early attempts at engineering were successful, plenty of these projects also failed, causing major catastrophes that ruined a number of burgeoning towns. DISASTER TECH looks at some of the massive misfirings of the pioneers' use of technology.
Description by New Video Group:
The frontier was full of rivers that needed taming and mountains begging to be blasted--and our forebears hoisted a hefty bag of tools to help them do it all. But of course, no one expected a frontier so dangerous--or so tempting! Trains, ships, towns--nothing could stop our expansion, until those technological monsters started biting back. Even then, we didn't always learn, and sometimes, it took massive disasters to teach us some very tough lessons. In this episode, we'll see how man's folly, pride, and stupidity led to some of the Wild West's worst catastrophes.
