Alaska Mega Machines

Image 1 / 7

Alaska is known for its great beauty and inspirational landscapes. However, it is equally as notorious for its rugged terrain, brutal winters and remote locations. ALASKA MEGA MACHINES explores the colossal equipment designed to help residents cope with everyday tasks, which are otherwise impossible. Each episode highlights three machines that are specialised to overcome extreme Alaskan weather conditions. In order to develop the most useful and lasting machines, engineers rely on science to create the most efficient and helpful equipment that is essential for survival. This season features the Yeti, designed to keep the coldest airport in America running, a rugged ship built to withstand tsunami size waves and a barge like you’ve never seen before that carries an entire train across Alaska’s high seas.
