Jason Latimer (Science Center curator, magician) is fascinated by the seemingly impossible worlds of sci-fi and fantasy. On "Impossible Science," Jason challenges what's believable through mind-bending illusions; demonstrating how concepts like invisibility and telepathy might appear in real life. Then he meets the technological innovators working to make these impossible ideas a reality.
Awesome series. Gave 9 stars because it could have been a couple episodes longer. Also could have gone into detail on a couple more key figures. BUT those figures were military and I think this focuses quite well on the foreign politics of the time. Politics is setup for any history of conflict. Very difficult to convey, but this series does well. With historical politics, you're tasked with presenting prevailing attitudes of politicians and the people involved. This was obviously too massive and this series is an overview. It has to be.
Details a time that I think is misunderstood at the least, forgotten at most. You see quickly that WWII was inevitable. Sad. Democracy was not recognized widely enough. The world had to go through growing pains first.
Well worth your time, if your into history the least bit.
