After two months in training with the Micacos castells team of Badalona, reporter Pere Renom learns how important it is in this sport to analyze positions and body tightness. He also learns that the strain on the body is intense but brief, and that having strong abdominal muscles and legs and a good sense of balance are essential.
Finally, the reporter debuts at the castells event in Candela de Valls. 50 castells teams from all over Catalonia take part in this celebration, which is held every ten years. The Micacos team, with Pere Renom as a member, raised a 4 de 6 amb agulla (a tower comprising six levels with four people on each level and an interior agulla, or column, of one person per level).
In the studio, presenter Jaume Vilalta explains how important the sash worn by the team members is in turning the castell’s trunk into a hydropneumatic column. It reinforces the spinal column and makes it possible for the team members to bear the weight.
Later, in the studio, the program will show why it is so important to keep the weight balanced when building castells and when carrying heavy objects.
The dorsal muscles are separated from the spine so that they act as a lever.
The strength needed to lift a 25-kilo butane gas cylinder is multiplied by 10—making making it seem like 250 kilos—the farther away it is held from the spinal column.

Naturalist Jaume Sañé shows us some spectacular scenes of vultures feasting on a dead animal. Thanks to a camera placed inside a deer carcass, this necrophagous species is shown close-up as it uses its powerful beak to tear meat from the carcass. “Who-What-How” also explains how these animals can be photographed and how Velcro was invented, one of the clearest links between nature and technology.

Wool is an ideal insulator. This is why sheep must be sheared in the summer; otherwise they would be so hot that they might not even be able to reproduce. Today other lipids, called ceramides, very similar to those found in human skin, have been found in wool. Wool is also good for keeping houses warm. “Who-What-How” visits a wooden house in Lleida whose walls are lined with xisqueta wool, from sheep bred in the Lleida Pyrenees.

Volcanoes and lava are the main attractions of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. A volcanic explosion is very similar to what happens when you open a bottle of a carbonated soft drink or champagne. Accompanied by a Teide National Park guide, “Who-What-How” looks at the island’s lava and explores the world’s biggest lava tubes.

The funds needed to finance the space industry are so astronomical that only big agencies like NASA and ESA, or multinational companies, can afford to invest in them. An international team of students and engineers from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) is developing a project to launch a satellite into space for less than 1200 euros. The challenge is part of the “N-Prize” contest to encourage low-cost space technology.
Joshua Tristancho and his team have presented this project which uses a helium-inflated weather balloon to slowly lift a launcher 35 km into space. From there a rocket lifts off in two stages. The first stage soars to a distance of 270 km and reaches a speed of 2.7 km/s. The second stage launches the satellite into orbit at a speed of 7.7 km/s, that is, nearly 30,000 km/h, 22 times the speed of sound.
