This groundbreaking one-hour event takes you into the whirling devastation of a tornado's heart as cutting-edge science meets over-the-edge filmmaking to capture incredible images of what happens inside one of nature's deadliest phenomena! Witness the construction and first deployment of the revolutionary Tornado Intercept Vehicle-8,000 pounds of ?-inch armor plating, bullet-proof windows, state-of-the-art camera, and a crew of hardcore, thrill-seeking filmmakers. Plunge into the killing zone of tornadoes capable of generating 300-mph-plus winds as researchers risk life and limb to shoot never-before-seen footage from within these monster storms. From stunning computer-generated imagery, to riding shotgun in the first vehicle ever to take a camera into a tornado's vortex, it's extreme, adrenaline-driven science.
