We spent a week living with the sport-styled GT-Line RWD model, slathered in a sweet Steel Matte Grey paint.

Installing an Olympic-Size Swimming Pool in a Stadium

Installing an Olympic-Size Swimming Pool in a Stadium

An olympic-sized pool doesn’t seem like the sort of thing you can just add to a stadium. But in 2012, Omaha’s CenturyLink Center (now the CHI Health Center Arena) enlisted Myrtha Pools to install a massive pool to support the U.S. Olympic Trials. This time-lapse video compresses the entire process down to less than 45 seconds.

Real Engineering explains the physics, and how we ended up with oval windows.
