        Steam Machine

        In an age of high-powered sports cars and low-emission hybrids, steam engines seem terribly quaint. But not so long ago, a steam-powered warship was the most advanced military craft in use. This interactive activity from the NOVA Web site illustrates and describes the inner workings of the USS Monitor's piston steam engine.

        This resource can be found on the NOVA: Lincoln’s Secret Weapon Web site.
