The internet is filled with wild videos of people who have unwittingly put science to the test. They've wondered what would happen if they attached rockets to a skateboard. And if a concrete canoe can float. And how many leaf blowers it takes to power a homemade hovercraft. Many of these videos garner millions of views because their exploits have failed, often with hilarious consequences. Now, Science Channel is experimenting with some of the internet's most infamous video flubs in its newest series WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?, world premiering Saturday, February 7 at 10 PM ET/PT. In each of ten episodes, real-life friends Kevin Moore and Grant Reynolds decipher what went wrong in the most outrageous internet video fails and make it their personal mission to successfully recreate each experiment with sound science and a little personal creativity.
Kevin and Grant build supersized Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and face off in a no-holds-barred battle royale. They'll also find out if they can build a motorcycle with just one wheel, and what it takes to survive the perfect storm.
The guys build a submarine and large wind-up cars; and see if duct tape can stop a bullet.
Check out the amphibious motorcycle; a scientific mini-golf contest; and a live video game that uses virtual reality drones.
Kevin and Grant become monsters of the fairway when they turn a golf cart into a monster truck. The guys take on the science of Spider-Man when they engineer a way to scale a 50-foot wall. And they turn power tools into high speed racing machines.
Kevin and Grant build a homemade hydrofoil capable of hitting top speeds. Can they make it go so fast it glides over the water? The guys also learn if you can cook a steak with music, and whether they can build a table that can withstand an earthquake.
The guys engineer a plan to survive a three-story fall without a parachute, try to escape the legendary powers of homemade quicksand, and build a massive squirt gun from recycled items in the garage.
Things get explosive when Kevin & Grant push the physics of flight to build the ultimate Trash Can Rocket! TV parts, the Sun's power and ingenuity produce a Solar Powered Death Ray. Fenders bend when the guys try to execute a perfect Power Slide.
Kevin & Grant hit the streets to make the fastest Motorized Trike! They turn a childhood game into a risky test of distance and accuracy with their Uber Water Slide. The rapid-fire action of a Meatball Gatling Gun takes culinary arts to a new level.
While examining the principles of armor design, Grant and Kevin challenge each other to lawnmower jousting for backyard glory; the guys try a water-, shock- and bullet-resistant cell phone case.
Kevin & Grant test their skills when building a Homemade Hovercraft capable of crossing land and sea. How can a Merry-Go-Round produce Top Gun G-forces? Add motorcycle muscle. The guys attempt to defy gravity and walk on the ceiling in Magnetic Boots.
Kevin & Grant attempt to reach 30mph riding an improvised Rocket Skateboard! A Catapult built from scraps gets dialed it in for a basketball shooting competition - Man vs Machine. Kevin is convinced the power of buoyancy will float a 400lb Concrete Canoe.
Kevin & Grant try to survive a 30mph ride through rough terrain in their Off-Road Soap Box Racers. The classic homemade Volcano gets supersized into a 3-stage eruption. Aerodynamics and a 46-year old gridiron record are challenged by a Football Cannon.
Grant and Kevin soar to new heights with a Giant Paper Airplane that can fly over two hundred yards! They try to stop a moving car with no brakes using their James Bond Car Brake. And they use pneumatics to create the Ultimate Beer Delivery.
The guys build a vortex cannon; send a levitating racer around a track; and make a frosty bulletproof-glass mug.
