That’s Impossible is a six episode documentary series presented by the History Channel which examines some apparently impossible technologies seen in stories and movies. It’s a showcase of science-fiction fan’s dreams; invisibility cloaks, terminator-like machines, weather warfare, eternal life, energy weapons and mind control. For sure each one of those ideas sounds impossible or at least unbelievable, however it appears they are not so far fetched as it seems. What gives this show some credibility is the presence of the editor of Scientific American, a quite respected scientific journal, who is commenting on various research possibilities to develop such various science-fiction concepts. It is of course in his nature and profession to be very skeptical, but he’s still approving some of the ideas presented.
