Season 8 / Episode 9 and airs on 23 August 2017 21:00
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.
Find out how to do it like a boss. Features a record-breaking butt skipper, a woman restraining four motorcycles, and the fastest downhill bike ride ever. These guys reveal the very best of human ingenuity and perseverance by doing it like a boss.
We separate science fact from science fiction. From a woman who walks on water and a man that pumps up inner tubes with his ears, our experts ask "are they for real?," and expose the internet's best tricksters.
We're pitting Man vs. Nature. When a glass-breaking gorilla and a speed-racing sea lion face off against a snowman in the desert and an underwater wheelchair, who comes out on top?
We countdown the clips that show off the Internet legends with the most epic skills on the planet: the world's most incredible skin, the world's first tattooing toes, and a speed flier that lands inside a moving cable car.
We're counting down the most amazing -- and dangerous -- home experiments! We're mixing electricity with swimming pools, racing supercharged golf carts on the dragway, and setting off homemade gunpowder to finally crown the top homemade hotshot.
In this episode it's not the destination that counts, it's how you get there. And the stranger the better. We're snowboarding in the clouds, quad bike riding with a koala, and looping a car in a sphere.
In this episode mind and body go head to head as we pit Brain vs Brawn! We're smashing fruit with a 9-inch nail launcher, building and destroying a giant sandcastle, and kissing cobras.
We're displaying mechanical marvels and eccentric engineering as we count down the best builds on the web. Showing off a seafaring super car, bees that can 3D print, and the jet powered wings that make man fly.
We're turning epic fails into epic wins! In our search for the most cringe-worthy clips on the Internet, we witness a close call with a humpback whale, a plane that flies with circular wings, painful ant bites, and a glow stick explosion.
Prepare to be shocked as we count down the most surprising and unexpected clips on the internet. There's a communicating crow, a super speedy tractor, a silly putty axe, a monster crane lift, and a surfing motorcycle.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
