Dig a hole. Sounds easy enough.
Or is it?
That’ll be the topic of an upcoming episode of “Going Deep With David Ress” on the National Geographic channel. The show focuses on teaching viewers how to do things they think they already know and explores the science and history behind seemingly mundane tasks.
Andris Freivalds, professor of industrial engineering, will be a guest on the show and conduct an experiment with David Ress where the two will compare the weight of dirt that can be moved with the amount of physical exertion.
“How to Dig a Hole” will air at 10 p.m. on July 21 and again at 10 p.m. on July 25. More on the episode can be found at: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/going-deep-with-david-rees/episodes/how-to-dig-a-hole/.
