In 2010 epic earthquakes all over the planet delivered one of the worst annual death tolls ever recorded. The deadliest strike was in Haiti where a quake just southwest of the capital Port-au-Prince killed more than 200000 reducing homes hospitals schools and the presidential palace to rubble. In exclusive coverage a NOVA camera crew follows a team of US geologists as they first enter Haiti in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy. It is a race against time as they hunt for crucial evidence that will help them determine exactly what happened deep underground and what the risks are of a new killer quake. Barely a month after the Haiti quake Chile was struck by a quake 100 times more powerful unleashing a tsunami that put the entire Pacific coast on high alert. In a coastal town devastated by the rushing wave NOVA follows a team of geologists as they battle aftershocks to measure the displacement caused by the earthquake. Could their work and the work of geologists at earthquake hot-spots around the U.S. one day lead to a breakthrough in predicting quakes before they happen? NOVA investigates intriguing new leads in it's gripping investigation of a deadly scientific conundrum.
