    • TRIVIA (4)

      • During launch roll out, the crawler-transporter keeps its load level to such a degree that the nose cone of the space shuttle does not sway outside the diameter of a basketball.

      • One 70/70 Off-Road Tire inflated to 120 pounds per square inch has enough potential energy to blast a 200 pound man nearly 10,000 feet in the air.

      • The head tube of the Specialized Demo 8 is so strong it could bear the weight of a Mini Cooper automobile.

      • Not surprisingly, Las Vegas is a hotbed for the world's strongest – including the light beam on the Luxor Hotel. Rated at 42 billion candlepower, it's so strong that airline pilots can see it from 250 miles away.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: They're engineered to be the strongest machines of their kind. Whether it's hoisting a hundred tons worth of jet fighters, toting 15 million pounds of space shuttle gear on hundreds of two tons of shoes, of flipping 30 acrobats to a sheer vertical, you won't want to try any of this at home. But if you want a bicycle that's supposed to survive a forty foot fall or a blender that will margaritas and pulverize your phone, then we've got the beef. Now, the untold story of the World's Strongest, on Modern Marvels.
