Have you ever wondered what gives the tennis ball its signature bounce? Or how the Taser gets its knockout punch? Or what hot dogs are really made of? In a new series called, Factory Floor with Marshall Brain, the National Geographic Channel and engineer whiz Marshall Brain, of HowStuffWorks fame, give us a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to make some of our most common goods — from fireworks and escalators to airbags and frozen pizza. So hitch a ride on the conveyor belt, take a turn in the durability lab, and give us a call if you have a question for Marshall.*
* We particularly want to hear what fascinates you about how things are made. And if you work in such a factory, tell us your stories!
