Materials have defined many eras of humankind including the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, as well as recent periods dominated by plastics and silicon, and more. Now, our world is poised on the edge of a revolution in the science of materials. MAKING STUFF, a 4-part NOVA series, reveals materials pushed to the extreme, then takes viewers on a nano-journey inside to reveal how atoms themselves can be manipulated.
