Just beneath the surface of Canada's Alberta forest sits the largest oil reserve in the world. Mother Nature has thrown a curveball though—the oil can't be pumped because it's trapped in sand, and extracting it is already causing major environmental impacts. Watch as multiple companies race to develop technologies to unlock the vast oil and profit hidden below Canada's forests.

Ekati Diamond Mine

Travel to Canada's Northwest Territories where monster machines are moving mountains of gem-studded earth at the Ekati Diamond Mine. Here, in the brutal sub-Arctic, meet a trio of the world's most hardcore mining machines.

Sea Launch

The two giant ships of Sea Launch, a NASA-like mission control and a launch pad floating on the ocean, form part of an outrageously expensive, multi-national venture for blasting commercial satellites into space. It's a story of spectacular engineering successes, and a couple of costly failed launches.

Baikonur Cosmodrome

Explore the Baikonur Cosmodrome, crown jewel of Russia's space program. Trace the glorious history of this mega-complex from the landmark launches of Sputnik and the first cosmonauts to its current status as a gateway to the International Space Station.

World's Biggest Airliner

The world's largest passenger plane is under construction and set to take to the skies in 2006. Weighing in at 1.2 million pounds, this MEGA plane, can seat 555 passengers over two main decks. Will the Airbus 380 be the future of aviation or will it be the biggest boondoggle in aviation history?

Indy Motor Speedway

Spanning 559 acres and host to over 250,000 permanent seats, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the largest seated sporting arena in the world. The Speedway opened its gates in 1909 during the horse-and-buggy era. Now, it is one of the most technologically advanced racetracks on the globe.
