Go on a journey to meet the pioneers of material science and their extraordinary discoveries!

At the edge of the Arctic Circle, the first real cyborg has a bionic arm connected directly to his nervous system. In the changing climate of the Mediterranean, a material with printed, natural proteins promises energy-free clean water for farmers in Crete. In Europe, the limits of materials technology are discovered and pushed, the first 3D-printed violin is built, and a demonstration of a self-healing, adaptive material demonstrates the power of material science. From our earliest tools to today's implanted bionics, the history of human civilization is a history of its materials. Today, more than ever, we need to use materials intelligently to meet the challenges of tomorrow. In this film, we journey to meet the pioneers of material science and learn about extraordinary discoveries within their field--a field that is going to continue to define the next century of human history.
