About this series
Alternately called a master genius or a dotty tinkerer, Adam Savage epitomizes the image of the brilliantly mad scientist.
On his popular Discovery Channel show Mythbusters, Savage and co-host Jamie Hyneman conduct magnificent scientific experiments to test urban legends. From exploding toilets to ballistic locks, they help push the boundaries of popular culture, scientific truth, and our imaginations.
In the following clips, Adam Savage reflects on his history of explosions, failure, and a deeply personal scientific curiosity.
