Forces of Nature Get up close and personal to nature’s most powerful and extreme forces. Cameras capture erupting volcanoes, devastating earthquakes, and powerful storms as a team of scientists travel the world in an attempt to figure out what causes these dangerous, yet undeniably thrilling natural occurrences. Putting their lives on the line in the name of scientific discovery, these experts forge their way through volcanic flows, along treacherous fault lines, and in cars heading straight into a raging tornado. Shows will be on the following Fridays at 7:00 PM

  • October 9
  • October 16
  • October 23
  • October 30
