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.

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.
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.
One of America's Founding Fathers may still be alive in Sleepy Hollow's latest colonial-themed quest. Plus, Tarkin arrives on Star Wars Rebels — and he's Grand Moff Tarkin now.

We have a couples beginnings this week with the premiere of the TV adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys (which we're pretty optimistic about!) and the return of Helix — can its new island setting win us over? Plus, The Librarians closes its first season while Constantine and Grimm are back from vacation.
Oh, television, how we missed you. Not only have many of our favorite shows returned from winter break, the long-awaited Agent Carter premieres, as does the sixth season of Archer. Neil Patrick Harris joins American Horror Story and Firefly's Morena Baccarin turns up in Gotham's Arkham Asylum.
Engineer, philanthropist, Apple co-founder and Gizmodo contributor Steve Wozniak is teaming up with Mythbusters' Kari Byron (seen in the photo above) for an upcoming reality show called The Woz.
As great as the Mythbusters are, the Ghostbusters may win for the sheer number of movie references they manage to get into their raps. On the other hand, the end of the video seems to hint that neither team wins when the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man turns up as a write-in candidate.
Being a genuine, card-carrying mythbuster is just about the best job anyone can hope for. And since most of us probably haven't managed to become one, we've got the next best thing—living vicariously through one. We're lucky enough to have Adam Savage from Mythbusters here to answer all your burning questions.
