Posted on 23 Mar 2011

Through first person accounts from those who survived, and from experts and scientists currently on the scene, Japan’s Killer Quake gives scientific context to the chain of events responsible for one of the most destructive disasters in recorded history.

"As we’ve seen by these recent heartbreaking events, there are forces of nature beyond our control that continue to shape our planet in monumental ways," said NOVA’s Senior Executive Producer Paula Apsell. "In the wake of such human tragedy, NOVA seeks to investigate and understand the science in order to better predict and prepare for natural catastrophes of this kind."

"This gripping new NOVA will examine the chain of events—from the earthquake to the tsunami to the on-going nuclear threat—to show how this disaster unfolded and explore ways in which science might protect us from a similar fate in the future," said NOVA’s Executive Producer Howard Swartz.

NOVA: Japan's Killer Quake airs Wednesday, March 30 at 8 p.m.
