Summary
Beginning with the toppling of the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, to the destructive, laserlike sunbeams bouncing off Londons infamous Fryscraper in 2013, here is an illustrated tour of the greatest engineering disasters in history. Each engineering disaster includes a simple, exciting experiment or two using everyday household items to explain the underlying science and put learning into action
