Super Stadium

It’s not just the cool steel-ribbon gift wrapping that makes the new Arizona Cardinals stadium radically different; it’s everything, from the “Starchitect” design by Peter Eisenman, to North America’s first slide-out tray field, to the “pie-slice” construction method, engineered to keep costs to a trim $350 million.

The NFL is betting that the Cardinals’ new home will help re-brand the woeful Cards as a winner, and kick-start a new era in sports stadia – away from the nostalgic feel of baseball parks, and onward into the future.

The showcase stadium hosted the Super Bowl in 2008, and become a new icon for Phoenix, Ariz., and football fans worldwide.

There’s enough done on site to see the finished product through the skeleton, and enough left to do that there’s plenty of extreme action at the stadium every day.

Modern Marvels: Carbon

All life forms, including us, are built upon atoms of carbon. But modern technology is also built on a foundation of carbon.

Modern Marvels: Carbon explores how such a simple element burns hotter, cuts deeper, dies harder, insulates more thoroughly, and absorbs more fully than any other material.

From diamonds to coal, carbon fiber race cars to graphite pencils, you’ll see why carbon is not just the stuff of life, but the key to modern technology.

You’ll also learn why “activated carbon” is the material of choice for absorbing everything from toxic heavy metals in your drinking water to funky odors in your shoes.

And you’ll see how NASA is using carbon aerogel, the lightest, most insulating substance in the world, to search for clues about-you guessed it-carbon-based life forms.

Nano: The Next Dimension

Nanosciences and nanotechnologies represent a formidable challenge for the research community and industry.

World-class infrastructure, new fundamental knowledge, novel equipment for characterisation and manufacturing, multi-disciplinary education and training for innovative and creative engineering, and a responsible attitude to societal demands are required.

This documentary film, made available by the European Commission, provides a glimpse of some of the many activities that are being carried out in Europe in these fast-grozing fields of research and technological development.

Inside The Mind of Google
In this CNBC Original, Maria Bartiromo takes viewers Inside The Mind of Google for a rare look at the world’s most powerful technology company and its crown jewel, the Google Internet search engine.

This is the fascinating story of how two grad students, in barely a decade, took a one-time research project and turned it into a global technology powerhouse… changing the way we interact with information, the Internet, and each other.

See how Google came to dominate the search industry and turn it into a profit machine… and see where it’s taking its next step… and how the company plans to address arguably the biggest controversy in today’s digital age: privacy.

Download: The True Story of the Internet

Download: The True Story of the Internet is about a revolution — the technological, cultural, commercial and social revolution that has radically changed our lives. And for the first time on television, we hear how it happened from the men and women who made it possible.

From the founders of eBay, Yahoo, Amazon, Netscape, Google and many others, we hear amazing stories of how, in ten short years, the Internet took over our lives. These extraordinary men and women tell us how they went from being geeky, computer obsessed nerds to being 21st-century visionaries in the time it takes most people to get their first promotion. And, how they made untold billions along the way.

The style of the story-telling is up close and personal. With first-hand testimony from the people that matter, we tell a story that has all the excitement of a thriller — full of battles and back-stabbing, moments of genius and moments of sheer hilarity. You will never surf the net in the same way again.

Download is hosted by technology journalist John Heileman. He’s an edgy, combative, hi-energy New Yorker who never takes anything at face value. He’s also a personal friend of most of Silicon Valley’s most important characters and he revels in craziness of it all. After all, this is a story in which 20-year-olds become overnight billionaires, create, destroy and re-create more wealth in ten years then human race has ever seen, and still struggle to get a date.

Web 3.0

A short story about the Semantic Web. Some Internet experts believe the next generation of the Web – Web 3.0 – will make tasks like your search for movies and food faster and easier. Instead of multiple searches, you might type a complex sentence or two in your Web 3.0 browser, and the Web will do the rest.

For example, you could type “I want to see a funny movie and then eat at a good Mexican restaurant. What are my options?” The Web 3.0 browser will analyze your response, search the Internet for all possible answers, and then organize the results for you.

­

That’s not all. Many of these experts believe that the Web 3.0 browser will act like a personal assistant. As you search the Web, the browser learns what you are interested in. The more you use the Web, the more your browser learns about you and the less specific you’ll need to be with your questions.

Eventually you might be able to ask your browser open questions like “where should I go for lunch?” Your browser would consult its records of what you like and dislike, take into account your current location and then suggest a list of restaurants.

Car of the Future
This one-hour program is divided into six chapters. Hitting The Road. Projections suggest that by 2050 there will be two billion vehicles on the world’s roads, two and a half times as many as there are today. The “Car Talk” duo, brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi, hit the road in search of the car of the future.

Hydrogen Fuel Cells. Iceland, with a thousand times fewer people and cars than the U.S., has introduced the world’s first hydrogen-fueled public buses in an effort to curb dependence on imported oil.

Towards Biofuels. Tom and Ray look at possible new ways to make ethanol. Such “biofuels” have much lower greenhouse-gas emissions but, critics say, come at a cost.

Frontiers of Efficiency. Engines have become more fuel-efficient over the years, but that efficiency has been channeled into more powerful vehicles rather than improving fuel economy.

Plugging In. Can the next generation of hybrid cars cause an energy revolution by allowing us to plug into the grid? Vehicles powered from power plants could substantially reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

Taking Action. To make the switch to more Earth-friendly vehicles, we need more than visionary thinkers and eco-conscious consumers, experts say. We need concerted government action.
