Tonight’s episode of MythBusters on the Discovery Channel will show the Archimedes Death Ray episode, done in conjunction with students from MIT’s 2.009: Product Engineering Processes. Definitely worth checking out (MythBusters is an awesome show!).
This isn’t the first time MIT students have done cool stuff on the Discovery Channel. A few years ago, my housemate and some others starred in “Crop Circles: Mystery in the Fields,” which included such classics as the “Winnebago of Science” and the “Flammschmeisser.”
And, of course, you can catch Ankur ’03 on Beauty and the Geek 2 tomorrow night at 9pm on the WB.
