A dockworker is run over by a truck. A parachutist falls 4,000 meters virtually unchecked. A family man is engulfed by the worst firestorm Australia has ever seen. All three of them survive.
Extreme experiences, nightmares come true, extraordinary incidents: the sciencetainment magazine “Galileo X.perience” tells the story of people who have survived their own deaths – and explains exactly how it happened.
These dramatic experiences from all over the globe are recorded in breathtaking and unique original footage taken by surveillance cameras or amateur filmmakers. And in emotional interviews the people involved provide a personal insight into the incredible events they lived through.
But now, at the point when the stories would normally be over, “Galileo X.perience” is just getting into its stride. With the help of experts, spectacular scientific experiments and revealing graphics, “Galileo X.perience” explains how and why certain survival strategies work – while others do not.
The key points are provided by original footage. And it is here that the elements which explain the miracles are concealed: sometimes the protagonist survives because of his lightning reactions, the instinct to do precisely the right thing… while in other situations a whole series of minor factors combine to let him live.
In each episode three gripping survival stories are presented in a completely new way of understanding the scientific background. The viewer discovers first-hand, with an authentic factual foundation, exactly how the people involved in these catastrophes managed to survive, and how he himself can learn from their experience – in extreme situations, but also in everyday life.
