What could we do if we had evidence terrorists were close to acquiring nuclear weapons, or even making their own? How would we defend ourselves from a blast with fireballs hotter than the sun? Today, defiant nations desperately pursue them, while at home, agencies prepare for the worst.
National Geographic races from motorcade to helicopter to confidential meeting, as scientists and intelligence experts reveal the hard facts about the world's most lethal weaponsand the unbreakable physical laws that govern them. Find out the actual capacities of a spy satellite, how we can be sure if an underground test is really atomic, and why terrorists might prefer to leave a "dirty bomb" unexploded.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
