Nepal Quake: Terror on Everest

Mountain Of Death_Smithsonian_NTSC_InternationalApril 25th 2015 – A devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hits Nepal causing widespread destruction.

More than 8,500 are killed, untold numbers are injured, and half a million homes are lost in what is the worst quake to hit the country in more than 80 years. In Kathmandu, centuries of culture are destroyed as religious and historic buildings are reduced to rubble. In Langtang, an entire village is wiped out of existence. On Mount Everest a massive ice avalanche kills a further 19 people at Base Camp, and dozens more are stranded in one of the world’s most inhospitable places. With interviews and rarely seen personal footage shot by the survivors, this film tells the human story of the quake and its aftermath through the eyes of those who witnessed it.

Intercut with these first person narratives is the scientific story of this tragic disaster. – A catastrophic event so powerful that scientists estimate it shrank Everest and lifted parts of Kathmandu by 3 feet.-This film investigates the science behind the earthquake and discovers what, if anything, can be done to prevent such a disaster from happening again.
