  • When in doubt C.

  • Four Welcome to watch Mojo and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10.

  • Biggest Mythbusters Explosions 321 It's a great go.

  • Oh oh my, for this list will be looking at times when the show took the art of blowing stuff up beyond any reasonable expectations.

  • Do you think we missed one of their best explosions?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • Number 10 Tree cannon.

  • That is a treat.

  • Ken hailing all the way back to their first season, this eruption of wood and fire came from Jamie himself.

  • After losing his handmade granite projectile to a fully working tree cannon, Jamie takes his revenge in style.

  • They seal the cannon with £5 of gunpowder and detonated, producing one of the more memorable explosions from the show's early seasons.

  • Thank you.

  • The blast obliterates the cannon throwing splinters in every direction, leaving Onley black scorch marks on the ground.

  • Planks of wood flying everywhere in slow motion give viewers the best sense of how Onley £5 of gunpowder can still destroy their launcher.

  • Or, as Jamie puts it, Cannon went away.

  • Number nine, RPG versus trailer.

  • It took Mythbusters eight years to finally have a shot at trying out a rocket propelled grenade, testing the myth that a single bullet could set the rocket off.

  • Grant, Kari and Tory take the RPG out for a test run by four three to what?

  • What follows is a delightful combination of firepower and camera work.

  • The beauty of this explosion comes from the high speed footage as the rocket passes through the trailer between the giant fireball in the front and the horizontal blaze out the back on explosion never looked so good.

  • Number eight exploding toilet way.

  • Get Thio ready, todo talk about being in the hot seat.

  • Buster gets his pants blown out during his debut, and Adam and Jamie test to see whether explosive materials poured down a toilet could be accidentally ignited.

  • After several failed attempts, Jamie pours black gunpowder on Buster's lap, then drops the match to reveal the results from the wobble of the protective glass to the giant ball of smoke.

  • This freshman season entry lights the match for an explosive future for the show.

  • From here on out, Mythbusters would push the boundaries of bigger is better, but it all had to start somewhere.

  • Not even half a tin of gunpowder could unseat our new star.

  • If anything, it just enhanced his smoldering good looks.

  • Number seven Water Heater Rocket Did you know what was lurking in your basement in this fan favorite episode of Mythbusters showed us that even your basement could be highly explosive.

  • After removing all the safeties from a household water heater, the team more than doubles the pressure inside the tank, pushing it far past the limit.

  • Okay, everybody, we're at 300 PSE.

  • That's twice the tank rating.

  • Keep your eyes peeled.

  • What follows is a discharge that sends the water heater into orbit.

  • Oh, suddenly the heater launches and tears through the roof like it's tissue.

  • The pressure blast demolishes the miniature house, while Adam and Jamie stare into the sky, wondering when the tank will return with an absence of fire and smoke.

  • You're not expecting to see something from your basement have such destructive power?

  • It's the surprise, combined with the blast that makes this such a worthy entry on our list.

  • Number six rocket sled compact car in three.

  • To what?

  • Wait?

  • Did the flash just blow up a car after crushing a compact car between two trucks but failing to fuse them together.

  • Adam and Jamie decide to go bigger.

  • They theorized that a set of two stage rockets on a rail bed might fuse metal to metal, flipping the switch they watch as a red streak of fire obliterates the automobile.

  • What makes this entry so memorable is watching the rocket sled shoot down the rail and abruptly coming to an end in a ballooning ball of smoke.

  • Since we're so used to seeing the boom go sky high, the sideways shenanigan makes for a nice, unexpected delight.

  • So our goal was to fuse metal and pancake the car.

  • Did we achieve that?

  • What car number 51 million match heads Say it with.

  • Do not try this at home.

  • If I find out that any of you try this at home, I'll personally come to your house and kick your butt.

  • You got that?

  • Who would have thought something so small could produce something so large in this viral video special?

  • The team confirmed that 30,000 match heads could yield a barrel sized flame, but in true Mythbusters fashion, they dial it upto a million to see what happens, 30,000 was fine.

  • Don't get me wrong, but we went ahead and cut a million a small flashes, then followed by a pillar of fire that lights up the nighttime sky.

  • Adams reaction to the Tower of Flame describes it best.

  • That was awesome.

  • That was exactly like a small one, only bigger.

  • What makes this blast better is knowing that it came from the same thing that lights your campfire, and they say you shouldn't play with matches.

  • Number four Coffee Creamer cloud After replicating a viral video about a cannon powdered by sawdust, the build team decides to try non dairy creamer as a replacement fuel.

  • So with the promise of a much bigger cannon and a deadly dose off mark milk powder, it looks like the sky's the limit.

  • Now I want to wrap it up.

  • They pack £700 of the powder into a barrel and blasted into the air in 321 What might have happened?

  • Oh, that was frightening.

  • What initially looks like a cloud of white dust quickly ignites into a truly frightening ball of fire.

  • It's enough to scare carry into running up a hill to avoid the outer reaches of the flame.

  • I started up the hill a fast as I could go, and I'm still on a little bit of adrenaline buzz right now, it doesn't have the blast force of some of our other entries, but the sheer size of the fireball is enough to scare anyone.

  • Remind us to keep the coffee creamer away from the stove.

  • And just in case you missed the message, I hope I don't need to tell you this.

  • But don't try this at home.

  • Number three.

  • Catch me if you can.

  • Jamie wants Big boo cannon explosion.

  • Really cushion a fall from 22,000 ft.

  • That's what the Mythbusters tested in this episode, after the test subject is dropped from the air, there's a pause before the blast goes off, but when it does finally go, it's quite a sight to see.

  • You can see streaks of dust sprout out in all directions, like tentacles on some sea creature that quickly dissipates as it's followed by a mushroom cloud reminiscent of a nuclear bomb test.

  • The blast is so intense that it sets fire to the surrounding landscape while rapping shrapnel around tree branches.

  • This £1000 bomb illustrates how even early in the show's run they were not messing around.

  • Fortunately, the county Fire department are quick to respond on their state.

  • Just they just getting better and better come around.

  • Number two RV, no more with an R V in the middle of the New Mexico desert.

  • This episode rang familiar to fans of breaking Bad, but this time it wasn't a case of trying to cover up a meth lab on wheels.

  • This right here is £855 of ANFO.

  • Now when this stuff goes off, it's gonna release 5355 mega jewels.

  • Sounds like a lot of energy, right?

  • Instead, the Mythbusters packed £855 of ANFO into an RV to capture an epic blast at 50,000 frames a second.

  • Wow, What makes this so memorable is the detail captured on the high speed camera.

  • We can see the vehicle light up from underneath as the flame slowly expense devouring everything in a giant ball of fire.

  • Combine that with the noticeable ripple effect caused by the shock wave, and you have one of the best visuals ever captured on Mythbusters.

  • that might be the most beautiful shockwave we have ever recorded.

  • Look at it.

  • It's like a lens.

  • It's like a Photoshop effect before we unveil our number one pick.

  • Here are a few honorable mentions Painting with explosives, a beautiful blast of paint in every color.

  • It was quick, but when you slow the explosion to 1000 frames per second wow Jato revisited, they can't seem to get that car off the ground.

  • It's headed Georgia Ram, but with that power came no responsibility or not.

  • Manhole Madness.

  • No Ninja Turtles were harmed in the making of this episode.

  • Look at that.

  • Thermite versus ice.

  • Who knew hot and cold were so explosive?

  • I'd say that was an explosion.

  • I'm pretty sure that making diamonds That's a lot of boom for a little bling.

  • With over 10 times the might of any other Mythbusters boom, it sure was a blast.

  • Number one cement truck.

  • In testing a myth about cleaning a cement truck out with explosives, the team literally obliterated the vehicle into nothing but dust and smoke, often referred to as the most iconic Mythbusters moment.

  • No detonation in the history of the show even comes close to this 2005 original from a quiet countdown to a deafening bang.

  • The truck is vaporize in this astonishing blink and you'll miss it moment.

  • It seems so peaceful, Just like I think the cement truck evaporated.

  • The show often had massive fireballs, but nothing ever came close to the instantaneous vanishing of that truck where Thio E left it right.

  • Even their revisit in the grand finale didn't have the same sense of surprise the original gave us.
