David Pogue’s Making Stuff on NOVA

If you watched CBS SUNDAY MORNING this past weekend you may have seen a segment on David Pogue’s upcoming new special  for NOVA: MAKING STUFF.  To see more making stuff, I encourage you to check out NOVA this week.  NOVA: MAKING STUFF hosted by Pogue is a four-part series beginning  Wednesday at 9pm with making stuff faster.  The other programs in the series will focus on making stuff wilder, colder and safer.  Each program entertains with Pogue’s unique, and at times humorous, but always informative presentation style.

In the first installment, NOVA: MAKING STUFF FASTER David Pogue wants to find out how much we can tweak physiology and engineering to move humans and machines even faster. Are there physical limits to how fast humans can go?   Pogue takes the viewers along as he investigates everything from lightning-fast electric muscle cars to ultra-sleek sailboats, ultra-fast cameras and even quantum teleportation, does anyone remember QUANTUM LEAP?  But making stuff faster is also about efficiency and the science of optimization. From the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to the UPS headquarters and inside a packed 737, Pogue’s quest for ultimate speed limits takes him to unexpected places where he comes face-to-face with the final frontiers of speed.  If you can’t tune in Wednesday evening set your DVR to catch this great new special from NOVA.

NOVA: MAKING STUFF FASTER airs Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 9pm on WOSU TV with an encore presentation Thursday, Oct. 17 at 9pm on WOSU PLUS.
