Description:

Mankind is currently defying all four basic elements to engineer big, useful, ambitious, and environmentally friendly projects that will shape our future on planet Earth and even plant the seeds for the colonization of other planets. Episode 1, Power Tower: In downtown Guangzhou, China, one of the greenest structures on earth is rising. Known as Pearl River Tower, the 71-story building will rely on just wind and sunlight for its power supply. Roger Frechette, one of the most famous architect designers in sustainable buildings of the SOM architecture firm, details his conception about tomorrow's architecture and his work in coordination with the Chinese teams to make this dream come true. Mr. Ciu, manager of the Chinese construction teams, explains the numerous challenges and subtleties behind this gigantic construction site. Let's go to the heart of the action and take a front-row seat in the creation of the world's greenest skyscraper. Episode 2 Sun on Earth: A huge global increase in energy consumption is inevitable. Renewable energies alone will not satisfy our needs. While nuclear energy is often associated with fission and its dangers, scientists across the world are trying to master its bright side. Nuclear fusion is a safe, clean and unlimited source of energy. But unfortunately, it is incredibly difficult to master. There are different ways of going about it. Three main competing paths are currently being explored, and this episode takes a deep dive into each path.
