The roots of all most remarkable inventions!!!
29 December 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Oh my God!!!.....twenty seasons aired in USA and here in Brazil just a miserable box that come out and already out of catalogue, just a few episodes randomly selected, fortunately l'd took mine in time, in this has compressed and quickly explanation over those remarkable inventions and their early clues on the past and who start it without an objective intention or found by mistake, some were discovered over 8.000 years before, but due for unavailable technical condictions these initial projects wouldn't take ahead, at least some inventors let his name for the eternity as described by reliable sources!!....I really love Docs!!!!

Resume:
