Earlier this year a video appeared online purportedly showing how you could turn a lemon into a simple battery, and then use it to start a fire by igniting a piece of steel wool. It was similar to a simple science experiment we all tried in grade school, but going one step further to make fire? That’s where the…
It’s been less than a month since Mythbusters aired its final episode after it was canceled late last year. Actually, I guess we should call it the “formerly final” episode, as the Science Channel has just confirmed that the show is living on... but with new hosts, found through a reality TV competition.
“Isn’t San Diego Comic Con in July?” you might be wondering. And you’d be right. But Adam went to the first inaugural Silicon Vally Comic Con on a personal invite from Steve Wozniak, and he pulled out all stops.
Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters just wrapped its final season after over a decade, and the series finale featuring a stunt spanning an entire air field required Scott Sorensen of the camera crew to engineer his very own camera chase car out of an old Crown Victoria police cruiser and some ingenuity.
Mythbusters may have finally called it a day, but that seems to have freed up time for Adam Savage to get back to what he does best: build props.
After almost 300 episodes and fifteen seasons on Discovery, the Mythbusters have called it quits. To commemorate the end, Thomas Crenshaw put together an amazing supercut that reminds us why the show was awesome.
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters and Tested, is a known space suit geek, and he’s expressed his love for the design of the suits on The Martian quite a bit on social media. Now, Fox has sent him a suit to look over.
Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, told a story in his weekly podcast about how he used a siren retrofitted to his 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser to avoid an accident on Interstate 280 after his steering linkage shattered going over 50 miles per hour.
On tonight’s episode of Mythbusters, Adam and Jamie return to Star Wars for some inspirations. Among the things they figure out? Just how fast a blaster shot moves, and how people can dodge out of the way.
Tonight’s episode of Mythbusters, Flights of Fantasy features two very different types of flying machines: drones and a Lockheed U-2 spy plane. Show hosts Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman took a couple of minutes to chat with us about the episode and the rest of the newly-rebooted season of the show.
When we caught up with Adam Savage at San Diego Comic Con, he was excited to talk about all things Star Wars. For one thing, he’s got a special Star Wars episode of MythBusters coming up. For another, though, he visited the set of The Force Awakens, and saw something really, really cool.
Apparently, when Return of the Jedi was first on the drawing board, the geniuses of ILM attempted to create the Rancor as a full monster suit someone could wear. They did not succeed, and a puppet/model was used in the film. Do you see where this is going?
Get ready for more geeky fun from Adam and Jaime! The Mythbusters are returning to a Galaxy Far Far Away with another Star Wars themed episode coming in July.

If you're driving a truck full of birds, can you bang the truck and lighten your load as the birds launch into the air? Mythbusters concluded "no" when they tackled this question several years ago—but that's because they didn't have equipment as high-tech as these Stanford engineers'. The real answer, it appears, is a…
