We’ve seen them for decades on high-rated shows like Ripley’s Believe It or Not and in best-selling books like the Guinness Book of World Records. We’ve gawked at their strange talents, oddball feats and bizarre physical attributes. And yet, we are never given the answer to our most burning question: How is this possible?
They are the headline-grabbing, ratings-boosting stories of superhuman conditions – and behaviors – that only scientists dare attempt to understand.
In this pivotal series, what you and I see as unbelievable, inexplicable and totally impossible, science will prove to be otherwise. Each episode of SCIENCE IMPOSSIBLE probes strange cases and amazing feats through a scientific lens. With the aid of the world’s leading doctors, physicists, pain scientists and more we analyze and decode the mysteries behind these freak phenomena, explaining the inexplicable, making you believe the unbelievable and ultimately proving possible – the impossible.
Throughout history, “superhumans” have long been relegated to the world of freaks, sideshow acts and “human marvels”. But with the advent of modern science and new technologies, these “superhumans” are not only being explained – but providing answers and new clues to far greater medical and scientific mysteries.
What makes these people special?
What make these feats possible?
Science will explain.
With new understandings of the physics and limits of the human body, Science Impossible uses groundbreaking imaging techniques and observable experiments to dissect, decode and demystify each phenomenon in a step-by-step scientific investigation.
Each episode features multiple examples of superhumans from around the world.
