Discovery Channel Invests in Web Property

Discovery Communications, owner of the Discovery Channel, announced its acquisition of the Web site HowStuffWorks.com. HowStuffWorks.com is exactly what its name implies -- a site devoted to explaining how things work in the world around us. A visit to the site today features articles on how lightning, roller coasters and submarines work.

Discovery said it will create a complementary TV series called "How Stuff Works," which will air on the Discovery Channel beginning the following summer.
