BIG BALLS, PIGEONS AND (OF COURSE) LOTS AND LOTS OF DUCT TAPE, WHEN NEW FALL SEASON OF MYTHBUSTERS PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 AT 9PM ET/PT

Fresh off its third consecutive Emmy(R) nomination, MYTHBUSTERS is back for more explosive science-y goodness, as hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, and Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, return with all-new fall episodes beginning Wednesday, September 28 at 9PM ET/PT. The series, which first launched on Discovery Channel in 2003, is inspiring a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science ... by using experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends.

Fall 2011 myths will include:

Is it impossible for humans (without a point of reference) to walk in a straight line?

Are motorcycles better for the environment than cars?

Can you supersize a Newton's Cradle to epic proportions?

If a pigeon lands on the roof of a car, which is hanging precariously over a cliff's edge, could it provide enough force to send the car plunging over the side?

In a standoff between a hero with a revolver and a villain with a rocket propelled grenade (as seen in the movie Red), could the bullet trigger the warhead? And would the villain be taken out by the blast?

Was the "flying guillotine" a lethal ancient weapon -- or kung-fu make believe?

Can you use duct tape to fix a plane that has been mauled by a bear? (As odd as this one sounds, it's a story that has inundated our fan site message boards for years!)

Could a methane blast inside a sewer, blow manhole covers tens of feet into the air?

Some call it indestructible, but can truck bed liners stop an animal attack? Prevent a car from being damaged? Make it bomb-proof?

A behind-the-scenes look at the special locations MYTHBUSTERS use to in their myth-busting tests, from Alameda to Africa and from the desert to the deep blue sea.

Explosions. Rocket sleds. More duct tape. Oh... and more explosions!

3 - Number of consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Reality Program (2009, 2010, 2011)
