How technology will guide us

The end is nigh! But technology may be the key to helping us survive the apocalypse and avoid certain destruction.

Can a missile bunker protect you from a nuclear blast? Can an escape pod save you from a megatsunami? Could we put our bodies into cryosleep to avoid the apocalypse altogether?

In CNET's first limited docuseries, Claire Reilly sets out to answer these questions while investigating the biggest threats facing humanity, and the technology that could save the human race. We crossed the United States over the course of three months to meet the bright minds trying to hack a way out of the apocalypse and then crammed everything into this six-episode survival guide.

Watch as she visits a nuclear missile silo converted into an escape bunker for the superrich, looks inside a cryonics facility and puts a tsunami escape pod to the test.
