Special Operation Forces are highly trained military units specialised in conducting high-risk missions such as reconnaissance, counter-terrorism and unconventional warfare. Many of these missions expose them to extreme environments that they must overcome by strategically controlling their own physiology. They combat scorching dessert temperatures, sub-zero climates, high altitudes and deep waters. Fight Science will test the superior skills of these legendary soldiers by subjecting them to the most severe environments the human body can withstand to reveal what techniques they use that allows them to excel beyond typical human limitations. A team of top physiologists, tactical experts and technical engineers conduct extreme experiments in a custom designed laboratory with cutting edge technology. They push a Marine Scout Sniper, an Air Force Pilot, an Army Ranger and a Navy SEAL to the breaking point to reveal the physiological and psychological techniques they use to accomplish dangerous missions.
