Since its launch in 2003, the MythBusters television show has entertained audiences around the world. But MythBusters was never intended to be solely for entertainment purposes. Rather, the show and its iconic pop-culture hosts have sought to highlight the science involved in discovering the truth behind popular urban legends. Kari Byron (Mythbusters), Tory Belleci (Mythbusters), and Grant Imahara (Mythbusters) discuss MythBusters and compare notes with local scientists Dr. Angela Kemsley (scientist, Marine Protected Area Watch program coordinator, WILDCOAST biology, citizen science, ecology, animal behavior), Dr. Tiffany Chow (Neuroscientist, professor, clinical neurology, USC), Dr. Brian Keating (scientist and writer, professor astrophysics, University of California San Diego), and Dr. Steven Snyder (moderator, president and CEO of the Fleet Science Center) on the scientific methodology for experiments and why failure is not only encouraged but also a necessary part of research and discovery.
