MythBusters Experiment Puts a Cannonball Through Nearby Home

Oops! The MythBusters, a duo started by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, had a little mishap this week during one of their experiments. When they shot a cannonball, it ended up going through a nearby home.

They were working with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office at the time, and after the cannonball was fired, it took a series of bounces which put it into the home. Nobody was injured in the mishap, though the house will need some repair work.

After entering through one wall, the cannonball exited through another, and it’s unclear as to where it rested. I’m wondering if the homeowners get to keep it as a souvenir.

Do you have a favorite MythBusters myth? I like the one they did about the 5 second rule…
