"Mythbusters" Exhibit Coming To The Fleet

GUESTS:

Jon Lung, host, Mythbusters

Brian Louden, host, Mythbusters

Transcript

A new exhibit, "Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition" is opening at the Fleet Science Center on Saturday. The exhibit is based on the television show "Mythbusters," which has for years been the place to go to learn the answers to crucial questions like, does quicksand really pull you under? and how does Mentos candy make Diet Coke explode?

After a short hiatus, "Mythbusters" returned to television last year with a new cast, but the same curiosity.

The exhibition will give visitors a glimpse into how the mythbusters do their stuff, and a hands-on opportunity to use science to bust myths.

Hosts Jon Lung and Brian Louden joined Midday Edition on Thursday with an inside look at the show and the science of mythbusting.
