Arc of Innovation documents the making of the West 7th Street Bridge in downtown Fort Worth, Texas, which is a breakthrough from an artistic standpoint and for technology. The program takes a look at the creation of the bridge to its completion. The unique concrete arch bridge design required an equally unique construction plan. Conquering design and construction challenges, engineers built this first-of-its-kind bridge to meet the community's needs for aesthetics, budget, and speed. The transition between the demolition of the old and the opening of the new bridge, built in the same spot, had to take place in an unusually short period of time to minimize impact to traffic. One solution was to build what was believed to be the world's largest concrete arches constructed offsite and transported to a bridge location.

“Mystery of Easter Island”

A remote, bleak speck of rock in the middle of the Pacific, Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, has mystified the world ever since the first Europeans arrived in 1722. How and why did the ancient islanders build and move nearly 900 giant statues, or moai, weighing up to 86 tons? And how did they transform a presumed paradise into a treeless wasteland, bringing ruin upon their island and themselves? NOVA explores controversial recent claims that challenge decades of previous thinking about the islanders, who have been accused of everything from ecocide to cannibalism. Among the radical new theories is that the islanders used ropes to “walk” the statues upright, like moving a fridge. With the help of an accurate 15-ton replica statue, a NOVA team sets out to test this high-risk, seemingly unlikely theory — serving up plenty of action and surprises in this fresh investigation of one of the ancient world’s most intriguing enigmas.
