His new series Making More Stuff takes a wild ride through the cutting-edge science that is powering a next wave of technological innovation. Pogue meets the scientists and engineers who are plunging to the bottom of the temperature scale, finding design inspiration in nature, and breaking every speed limit to make tomorrow’s “stuff” “Colder,” “Faster,” “Safer,” and “Wilder.”

Watch Making Stuff on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on WV PBS beginning Oct. 16 with “Making Stuff Faster.” (“Making Stuff Wilder” will air on Oct. 23 and “Making Stuff Colder” will air on Oct. 30.)
