Subterranean Civilizations

Visit our sponsor, Brilliant:
Historically humanity has often taken shelter in caves or underground, and it is often thought we might do so again, on other worlds, in event of disasters, or simply because we run out of room on the ground above. In this episode we’ll explore the concept of building underground, from simply subways and basements to advanced bunkers or entire cities beneath the Earth.

This channel focuses on exploring concepts in science with an emphasis on futurism and space exploration, along with a healthy dose of science fiction. While we explore many concepts and technologies that are far beyond us now, we try to keep everything inside the bounds of known science or major theories.
