Where Did It Come From?: Ancient China: Masters of the Wind and Waves on DVD

From racing sloops to jet planes modern air and sea travel would not be nearly as advanced as it is today without Ancient China's remarkable ingenuity. In this eye-opening program travel halfway around the world with host Michael Guillen as he explores how the ancient Chinese mastered the complicated principles of fluid and aerodynamics thousands of years before the West. Climb aboard an ancient Chinese sailboat and discover how they invented the many nautical mechanisms we take for granted today. Learn how the notion of "hard air" (air pressure) was understood by Taoist monks thousands of years ago and witness how ancient paper and silk making skills enabled the Chinese to participate in manned flight two thousand years before the Wright Brothers first took to the air. Featuring practical demonstrations dramatic reenactments and interviews with distinguished scholars WHERE DID IT COME FROM? presents a definitive look at the extraordinary innovation of this ancient culture.
