Fantastic Feats and Failures by Yes Magazine

Book Description

Astronauts on Apollo 13 averted disaster with the help of duct tape. The design of the Sydney Opera House was based on the segments of an orange. The Tacoma Narrows Bridge swayed so much it was nicknamed ?Galloping Gertie.? From genius designs to deadly design-flaws, the story of engineering is full of oddities and surprises. Fantastic Feats and Failures includes bridge and dome-building projects, and other activities to test your engineering know-how.
