Nova: Building Pharoah's Chariot


In "Nova: Building Pharaoh's Chariot," a team of archeologists, engineers, woodworkers, and horse trainers join forces to build and test two highly accurate replicas of Egyptian royal chariots. They discover astonishingly advanced features, including spoked wheels, springs, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars, and even a convex-shaped rear mirror, leading one of them to compare the level of design to the engineering standards of 1930's-era Buicks! "Nova: Building Pharaoh's Chariot," Tonight at 8pm on WLRN, Channel 17!
