Chances are that at some point while watching Jamie and Adam do crazy experiments on MythBusters, you kind of wished you had their job. Let’s face it, it doesn’t get much better than making a living off playing with explosives, dropping pennies from the Empire State Building and feeding giant octopuses – all in the name of science.
While we can’t all be mad scientists, there’s nothing stopping you from testing out some of MythBuster’s most popular experiments at the “MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition,” now open at The Tech Museum in San Jose, Calif. Unlike other exhibitions, this one encourages visitors to interact with the props that were taken right out of the show and find out for themselves whether something is a myth or a fact.
As the show’s co-host Grant Imahara explained it during the exhibit's opening ceremony, “you’re going to be dodging bullets, hanging by your fingertips [and] driving blind.” But that's only part of it.
