Summary:
Arched over vast playing fields, domed stadiums are engineering marvels that seem to defy nature and physics, and have transformed the face of sports in America. Houston's groundbreaking Astrodome was the "eighth wonder of the world." New Orleans's Superdome and Seattle's Kingdome improved on the original, but one key problem remained: fans enjoyed watching the games outdoors. See how engineers tackled that obstacle with the awe-inspiring Toronto Skydome and its revolutionary push-button retractable roof! More than just a stadium, the Skydome includes a hotel and countless other features in a state-of-the-art entertainment complex. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the technology and construction of this astonishing structure that is sure to be the model for the super-stadiums of the 21st century.
