The internet is full of videos of death-defying, seemingly impossible stunts, but how do they do it? In this series we discover which of those most extraordinary clips show real feats of human strength, endurance and coordination and which are rouses meant to fool us.

In each episode, a panel of six young experts in biology, chemistry, physics, maths, medicine, and visual effects examine these eye-popping videos and breakdown the science behind them to reveal whether they are fact, fake, or fiction.

Superhuman Science is pop-culture meets science as our experts apply the laws of physics, human physiology, and video analysis in our virtual science lab to separate the super human and from the super hoax, and the super science from super special effects.
