First, a trip to Wembley, England to examine the world's most technologically advanced football stadium. When completed the new Wembley Stadium will seat 90-thousand people, contain over 3-million cubic feet of concrete, and will be covered by an eleven acre moveable roof. All quite state of the art, but not exactly new technology. The ancient Coliseum had many of the same features nearly two thousand years earlier. So, we're off to Rome to build and test a Roman crane and demonstrate how the ancient Romans managed to erect the 16 story stadium in the middle of a crowded city. We'll also see if the Coliseum could empty its 55-thousand spectators in under 15 minutes, as some historians claim.
