To tweet this release: http://bmpr.ca/1HhntRm TORONTO (March 31, 2015) – The internet is filled with wild videos of people unwittingly putting science to the test. Now, using an assortment of the craziest videos to demonstrate, Discovery Science explores WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?, a brand new series airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT beginning April 21. Co-hosts Kevin Moore, a metallurgist, and Grant Reynolds, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, decipher what went wrong in the most outrageous internet video fails, making it their personal mission to successfully recreate experiments with sound science and a little personal creativity. The pair daringly tackle a wide range of stunts, including creating a solar death ray out of an old big-screen TV, using nitrous oxide on a go-kart to drag a truck, forging a Gatling gun that shoots meatballs, and many more!

Then, a classic homemade volcano gets supersized into a three-stage eruption while aerodynamics and a 46-year-old record are challenged by a “football cannon.” “Deadly Doughnuts of Fire” Tuesday, April 28 at 9 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT Moore and Reynolds turn a blast of air into a massive ring of fire when they build a “vortex cannon.” Later, the co-hosts use magnets, superconductors, and quantum physics to send a levitating racer around a track. All this hard work gets the duo a tad thirsty, prompting them to create a frosty bulletproof glass beer mug. “Jumbo Paper Plane” Tuesday, May 5 at 9 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT Moore and Reynolds soar to new heights with a giant paper airplane that can fly more than 180 metres. Later, the duo try to stop a moving car with no brakes using a “James Bond” car brake, and then use pneumatics to orchestrate the ultimate beer delivery.
