How To Survive the End of the World examines terrifying and scientifically plausible doomsday scenarios by exploring six distinct, world-threatening events—flooding, freezing, continent-wide storm systems, a global volcanic cataclysm, a killer pandemic, and nano-technology run amok—and the methods by which humanity would fight to survive against grim odds.


Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de How to Survive the End of the World

S01E01 Zombie Earth 10/12/2013 Is a zombie apocalypse simply a concept of fiction or could an infectious disease REALLY turn humanity into a race of vicious, seething monsters? The truth just might shock you! NGC examines one all-too-real scenario a pandemic caused by a mutated rabies virus. Experts from the fields of medicine, biology and the social sciences explain what could happen if humanity faced a deadly contagion for which there was no cure.
S01E02 Hell on Earth 17/12/2013 This episode examines this terrifying scenario by exploring the very real, and very deadly, science of volcanic activity. A team of physicists and space scientists suggests that a theoretical black hole could slam into the planet, punching a hole through it like a bullet through an apple. Earth would survive the impact, but the black hole would generate a colossal shockwave that disturbs the magma beneath every existing volcanic system.
S01E03 Frozen Earth 02/01/2014 Imagine a strange dark force pulling Earth out of its orbit around the sun, drifting into the outer reaches of space, our world thrown into the dark and cold in the face of an eternal ice age. That's the scenario scientists are examining in this episode of How to Survive the End of the World. Leading minds in physics and the space sciences come together to predict what might happen in the event of a true Armageddon and forecast human survival in this all-too-real scenario.
S01E04 Micro Monsters 00/00/0000
S01E05 Flooded Earth 24/02/2014 A scientifically grounded look at the destructive power of the most important element in human survival: water. We explore the terrifying consequences that flash floods and rising sea levels could have on global populations, as experts explain how a massive volume of water might come to earth from space, and wreak havoc once it arrives. We examine several ways we could fight the rising tide: building immense seawalls to protect entire cities, underwater habitats, and finding new ways to live on the surface of the sea. As the ground begins to vanish beneath our feet, we'd be forced to look at new ways to live on a planet that is becoming a water world – but how long can we keep our heads above water? Is there hope for mankind to survive? Our ability to adapt may be our ultimate salvation.
