What is the strongest material in the world? Is it steel, Kevlar, carbon nanotubes, or something entirely new? NOVA kicks off the four-part series Making Stuff with a quest for the worlds strongest substances. Host David Pogue takes a look at what defines strength, examining everything from steel cables to mollusk shells to a toucans beak. Pogue travels from the deck of a U.S. naval aircraft carrier to a demolition derby to the countrys top research labs to check in with experts who are re-engineering what nature has given us to create the next generation of strong stuff.
