Millions of tons of water gushing, dumping 600,000 gallons a second. Rapids that are strong enough to crush steel. Taller than three Empire State buildings, alluring and powerful, magnetic and dangerous - with this incontrollable power comes unpredictable danger. What have scientists, visitors and the daring uncovered about the power of the Niagara Falls?
We’ll speak with hydro-experts like Professors Christine Tsai and Joseph Atkinson who have studied the Falls for decades. How have Niagara’s incredible waters caused it to move several miles over the past 10,000 years and what’s in store for its future? We’ll go underneath the Falls and examine the unique geological characteristics that fuel it and at the same time, perpetuate its self-destruction.
