Crash-Absorbing Concrete

The team attempts to repurpose an amazing technology to prevent runaway vehicles from crossing the median and smashing into oncoming traffic. Currently, aerated concrete arrestor beds are used at the end of airport runways and the only way to know how effective it will be on traffic, full-size cars will need to be crashed at serious velocity! Ultra-high-speed video cameras reveal what happens and will ultimate determine if the crumbly concrete barrier can do the trick.
