Can a daring water engineering project revive the Dead Sea without altering its unique chemistry?
As the Dead Sea shrinks, engineers prepare a daring solution: connect it with the Red Sea by way of a massive desalination plant.
If it works, it could stabilize the legendary lake and ease regional tensions.
But will it put the environment at risk?
NOVA follows this unprecedented endeavor — perhaps the world's largest water chemistry experiment ever — as scientists and engineers race to save the Dead Sea and help bring water to one of the driest regions on Earth.
