There are 250 episodes of the show Mythbusters, give or take that have been produced over the course of 12 seasons. This includes the 13 or so new shows scheduled to air on Discovery over the next three months. Of those 250 or so episodes… only two (2) have not aired in the US.
Which two you ask? Surprise! It’s the two This vs That alleges contain it’s copyrighted material.
- The episode to determine the fastest way to board an airplane
- The episode featuring a series of experiments about highway traffic and its causes along with a comparison of a round-a-bout vs a traditional four-corner intersection and an experiment to determine if driving is faster than flying in some situations.

So, besides the allegations against Discovery & Mythbusters that clearly must be dealt with, what about the actual experiments? Well, today we’d like to offer you the first 10 minutes of This vs That’s airplane boarding experiment, done in conjunction with world-renown astro-physicist Dr. Jason Steffon, from Fermi Lab in Chicago. In addition to periodically contemplating alternate airplane boarding options, Dr. Steffon thinks mostly about dark matter in the universe. Plus, he’s a senior member of the Kepler Project team.
