About Outrageous Acts of Danger
The laws of physics govern all life on this planet. They are one of the few things in life that are universal, immutable, and predictable. We rarely think about them yet they impact everything we do.
In this series, adventurer Todd Sampson explores the fascinating world of physics, embarking on a series of challenges to reveal these powerful forces. With the help of leading young physicists, along with a first-class construction and safety team, each episode follows Todd’s journey from the kernel of an idea to a daring experiment that will show physics in action on an incredible scale.
These bold experiments are at the mercy of weather conditions, human error, mechanical failure, and Todd’s own willpower. Yet the science they're based on remains absolute.
But it’s one thing to believe in the science and another thing to bet your life on it.
