TV's spooky spotlight on environmental engineers

Need a ghostbuster? Call an environmental engineer.

Our friends at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services get some priceless promotional attention Sunday night on the National Geographic Channel.

In Haunted Prison, a team of Langan scientists sets up high-tech environmental monitoring devices inside Philadelphia's old, abandoned (and very spooky) Eastern State Penitentiary.

Their mission is to determine whether the ghosts of prisoners past--a matter of considerable local lore--have a measurable physical basis. (A lot more fun than measuring PCB plumes, no?)

The show airs locally at 9 p.m.

Check out the atmospheric trailer below for a preview.
