Designing a Fast Pool: Along with hosting the top swimmers from around the world, the London Aquatics Center at the 2012 Summer Olympics will feature one of the most technologically advanced pools ever built. Through advances in pool design, engineers are helping swimmers reach their maximum speed with technology designed to minimize waves. "Science of the Summer Olympics" is a 10-part video series produced in partnership with the National Science Foundation.
