Discovery Channel – Fridays from 16 May, 9.30pm

Based in a Crash Test Centre in California, this groundbreaking new series delivers a credible reason to crash, smash and blow things up in the name of revolutionary technology. Each week a team of maverick engineers take everyday technology, break it down to see how it works and then apply their genius to invent super-sized creations. The team experiment to determine if a bullet proof kevlar could protect an airliner from bombs, a car airbag could be reinvented to stop a helicopter sinking after ditching at sea and if truck dampers could be used to earthquake proof a house. Filmed from multiple angles and with incredible camera technology, Smash Lab is a visual feast of fireballs, explosions, crashes, collapses, collisions and impacts.
