The internet is ridden with clips of people doing crazy, hilarious and downright amazing things and on Outrageous Acts of Science, we highlight the cream of the crop. From human powered flying machines in Canada, space explorers in the UK, backwards talking girls in the US and the New Zealander that built a robot rock band the show counts down a definitive top 20 clips of people doing the extraordinary in each episode. With episodes dedicated to homemade inventions, human guinea pigs, nature obsessed thrillers and pure danger junkies the team of scientists deconstruct and explain how each action in the clip worked, how risky it was and above all exactly why it shouldn't be tried at home.
Are these incredible web clips fakes or not? Our team of scientists spots the hoaxes. Featuring skiing in Hawaii, a wingsuit pilot towed by a car, a close encounter with a great white shark, vertical driving, and the most amazing handgun trick shot ever.
We're going faster, further, and weirder than ever before! Featuring a man who drives his car 1,000 feet over water, a shrimp with the fastest punch in the animal kingdom, bionic boots, and a car that jumps over a plane.
The best backyard geniuses online! Featuring motorcycle chariot racing in Florida, a man who gives his friends a lift with his homemade Iron Man-style exoskeleton, a plane that flies without wings, and a 9-foot-high robotic insect.
We're pushing the boundaries of science to places it's never been before. Featuring an incredible world record truck jump, the world's fastest electric motorcycle, a 90-year-old gymnast, and a skydiver and wingsuit pilot who create a human flying carpet.
We're hunting for the internet's biggest wins and fails. Featuring an out-of-control skydiver, an alarming wasabi prank, a one-wheeled revolution in motoring, and the longest car jump ever attempted. But which are destined for disaster?
We take epic destruction and turn it into cutting-edge science. Featuring a man with a finger that can bash through coconuts, a car destroyed by a hose, a virtually indestructible Batman suit, and a 30-foot hand that can crush cars.
We're assembling a crack team of real-life superhumans: a home engineer who can walk on the ceiling, a knife nunchuck master, a diminutive arm-wrestler taking on a bodybuilder, and a man who can run a loop-the-loop.
Nature and science go head-to-head as we countdown the Internet's best videos. Featuring an amazing shark rescue, blood-sucking leeches, and a man who takes to the air armed only with a lawn chair, helium balloons -- and his shotgun.
The Internet's strangest inventions. Featuring a color-changing car, the world's fastest hot tub, an amateur rocket that reaches space, a flying car, and a stunt machine that's part skateboard and part tank!
Science is getting stranger and stranger -- and it's all being caught on camera. Featuring a ghost ship, a memory master, a bear that walks like a human, and a man who can walk a tightrope up hill.
