Editorial Reviews

In 2010, epic earthquakes all over the planet delivered one of the worst annual death tolls ever recorded. The deadliest strike was in Haiti, where a quake just southwest of the capital, Port-au-Prince, killed more than 200,000, reducing homes, hospitals, schools, and the presidential palace to rubble. In exclusive coverage, a NOVA camera crew follows a team of US geologists as they first enter Haiti in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy. It is a race against time as they hunt for crucial evidence that will help them determine exactly what happened deep underground and what the risks are of a new killer quake. Barely a month after the Haiti quake, Chile was struck by a quake 100 times more powerful, unleashing a tsunami that put the entire Pacific coast on high alert. In a coastal town devastated by the rushing wave, NOVA follows a team of geologists as they battle aftershocks to measure the displacement caused by the earthquake. Could their work, and the work of geologists at earthquake hot-spots around the U.S., one day lead to a breakthrough in predicting quakes before they happen? NOVA investigates intriguing new leads in its gripping investigation of a deadly scientific conundrum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 the Classroom November 20, 2012
By Teacher
Absolutely excellent dvd! This dvd was very informative and does a great job of explaining earthquake concepts that relate to STCM curriculum kits. It is especially beneficial for students who reside in the Pacific Northwest. Excellent coverage on the possibilities of a future disaster happening. I highly recommend this dvd! Superb job NOVA, and Thank You!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and melodramatic January 13, 2012
By John B.
I learned a few new things in this documentary - mainly the Japanese researcher who's come up with a way to create a 3D image of a volcano's internal structure using muons generated by cosmic rays decaying when they strike the Earth's atmosphere. Cool! But aside from that, the informative content was rather low - more akin to something one would see on the Discovery Channel than the once-great Nova series (no offense to the DSC). The rest of the doc was repetitious and the narrative a bit dumbed-down and hyperbolic. All those flaws were magnified by the over-the-top melodramatic music. Really awful. I'd feel my intelligence was insulted if I were a high school kid, much less an adult.

NOVA, please stop trying to out Discovery Channel the Discovery Channel. You will lose that battle, as well as what used to be your other core audience - intelligent, scientifically literate viewers.
