“Mythbusters” Cannonball Experiment Gone Wrong



I love watching Mythbusters, especially when they do a segment that has to do with guns! (check out Kari with a .50BMG) I’ve always wondered if any of their mythbusting attempts have ever ended in disaster, well it looks like one of them did.

This past Tuesday while filming a new episode at a bomb range in Dublin, CA the cannonball they fired missed its mark and soared 700 yards straight into a house and a minivan. Luckily no one was hurt, I wonder what myth they were trying to bust?
