Video - Mythbusters Cannon Ball Experiment Goes Bad And Blasts Through Two Houses!

Large Hole From Cannon Ball After Mythbusters Accident
We love the Discovery Channels science TV show Mythbusters. They’ve debunked some of the best myths ever to grace our sordid history.

But yesterday the show was put on hold after a cannon ball experiment went bad and the hosts shot a cannon ball through two houses and into a Dublin California couple’s minivan by accident.
Poor Jamie

The experiment, created by hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, was intended to illustrate what happens when you shoot NON cannon ball stuff out of a cannon.

The cannon was fired from the bomb range at Camp Parks but the ball traveled outside the grounds and into a residential housing area.

“The ball was supposed to hit a bunch of trash cans filled with water but it missed. Instead it ripped through a concrete wall, skipped over a hill of dirt before coming to rest in the city of Dublin.”

The Discovery channel has stopped taping the show until they complete an internal investigation.

We figured it was just a matter of time before something like this happened on the show. These guys do some pretty crazy things but always seem to take the necessary safety precautions.
