SCIENCE CHANNEL CELEBRATES "MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU" WITH ENCORE PRESENTATIONS OF STAR WARS THEMED MYTHBUSTERS EPISODES

MYTHBUSTERS: Star Wars - Revenge of the Myth - MAY 4 at 7pm

The MythBusters take on three iconic Star Wars scenes to see if there's any science fact behind this legendary piece of science fiction. First, Jamie and Adam -- with the help of actress Sophia Bush -- test if Luke really could swing himself and Leia across a chasm with only a belt-tied grappling hook, while being shot at by stormtroopers. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory head to Endor to test if a little bit of Ewok technology, a log swing weapon, really could take out an armored Imperial "Chicken Walker". Later, Jamie and Adam head to the ice planet Hoth to test if Luke really could have lasted in the belly of a tauntaun. But building a giant fuzz-and-foam tauntaun with fully operational guts proves to be anything but easy.

MYTHBUSTERS: Star Wars - The Myths Strike Back - MAY 4 at 8pm

Not very long ago, in a workshop not so far, far away, rebel scientists striking from a hidden base in San Francisco won their first victory. But....'The Myths Strike Back'! Adam and Jamie are again taking on the forces of evil and testing two tall tales from dark side. First up, Adam and Jamie look into Laser Blasters. A recurring theme in the movies is the ability of the heroes to dodge, evade and dive out of the way of an incoming Stormtrooper blaster shot. But is that possible? After working out how fast the blaster bolts move they re-create a blaster bolt battle, put their bodies on the line and commence the dive to survive. Then, in Higher Ground, they tackle the iconic scene from Episode III when Anakin is defeated in an epic light-sabre duel. Obi-Wan declares that the fight is over because he 'has the high ground'. To test the veracity of this age-old military adage our junior Jedis construct a clever conductive suit of clothes, a pair of less than lethal lightsabers and go head to head in a duel to the - not quite - death.
