  • Awesome Mythbusters clip.

    Just watch. No, this isn't a dumbass Rick Roll prank. Just when I thought Mythbusters couldn't get any cooler...

    They did that test in conjunction with my alma mater. That is just one of many rocket sleds that can be found near New Mexico Tech. More specifically they worked with EMRTC. Watching one of those sleds is even more exciting in person.

          From the high speed camera, it looks like the car becomes white and red dust.

          Crazy!

                This is kinda bizarre.

                My friend just showed me this clip and, in turn, I showed it to one of my classes to discuss the important concept of relative velocity.

                And yes, the idea of relative velocity is VERY important.

                        I couldn't help but watch it again.

                          I've watched it about 12 times now. It doesn't really get old, especially seeing that second stage motor kick in.

                            I love it when Jamie said "What car?" :D

                            Where's the rest of the episode? It ended with "It means they're not done yet." You mean there's more?
                            I gotta go check for Mythbusters re-runs! :madsmile:

                              The part that follows is also on Youtube. Basically detonating explosive material on top of two metal plates to see if they'll "fuse" together.
