|History Channel Chunk 2006|
In the early spring of 2006 we got a call from producers of a show called Man Moment Machine (or M3). They were doing a show on Alexander the Great and his great torsion engines... or Ballista. They were interested if we could shoot some stuff for them to see how a real ballista works.
At the time, the team was trying to solve the problem of the Broken Arms from the 2005 Punkin Chunk, so our machine was non-functional. Naturally, I said we could shoot for them, except for that pesky broken arm problem. Fortunately everything worked out with the help of Custom Composite Technologies Inc.
The show was first broadcast on Oct 31st, 2006.
If you missed the show, you can buy a copy online from the history channel store. Unfortunately, Siege-engine.com does not get a kickback from that sale.
