Discover the future of energy with National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough series
Open your mind to the cutting-edge scientific discoveries that are set to transform our lives forever in National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough on Sundays at 10pm.
Previously, Breakthrough has looked into the science of ageing, the highly complex human brain, and Paul Giamatti took us through the incredible world of cyborgs. Catch up on past episodes now on demand.
This week, producer and director Akiva Goldsman (I, Robot, Starsky & Hutch) tackles the ever-evolving issue of the world’s energy resources. Horrible Bosses’ star Jason Bateman narrates this highly topical episode.
Time is running out… As our fossil fuel supplies dwindle, inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs are looking for new ways to keep the wheels of the world in motion. Meet the people who are charging ahead with big ideas for our future energy consumption. From an inventor who is trying to harness the power of artificial tornadoes, to a billion-dollar experimental plant which has 10,000 mirrors focusing the sun’s rays on a tower filled with salt. Did you know that there is enough energy trapped inside a single glass of water to power a major metropolitan city for an entire day? Energy is all around us, we just need to discover the secret to unlocking it!
Breakthrough continues with ‘Energy on the Edge’ on Sunday at 10pm on National Geographic Channel.
