MythBusters cannonball experiment gone wrong, shoots through house
The cannonball was fired Tuesday at its most loved location, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department bomb range, but misfired and ‘missiled’ into a home where residents were sleeping. No one was injured in the indecent, but traveled several hundred yards before making an entry and exit wound in a house.
Traveling at bullet speed the cannonball bounced off a sidewalk and hurdled through the door of a house and shooting across the bedroom of the homeowners before exiting.
As Mythbusters Adam Savage always says: “in the name of science!” The experiment was testing to see what materials could be as effective (other than a cannonball) when fired out of the cannon.
Is it safe to say: BUSTED?
