Mythbusters at Exponent!


Back in the Fall, Mythbusters paid a visit to Exponent's Arizona facility where Max's office is located! Max and I are big Mythbusters fans. As a teacher, I appreciate that they use the scientific method, and as a boy, Max likes that they often blow things up. The episode finally aired yesterday and it's definitely worth viewing! The show tested whether a head-on collision of two cars (both traveling at 50 mph) shows the same impact as a car hitting a wall at 50 mph or a car hitting a wall at 100mph. They used Exponent's test track for the crashes, which was neat for us to see on television! If you're a Mythbusters novice, it airs Wednesday nights on Discovery. Below are links to the clips : )
