More than 1,000 tornadoes touch down in the U.S. every year. While most people run away, one team of scientists heads straight for the action. This program follows their activities, with a primary focus on one team member, Tim Samaras. Viewers learn about the small, armored, camera-laden probes which have been placed by the team directly in the path of several twisters in order to gain potentially lifesaving information on tornado patterns and dynamics. One sequence shows what happens when a device positioned by Samaras is swept up 70 seconds later-the prelude to an astonishing pressure drop and the rapid destruction of a two-story farmhouse.
