Boys and their toys, again!

This video is a clip from the TV program Mythbusters. Here, Adam and Jamie try to vaporize a car - with a rocket sled!

Yep, I'd call that the closest thing you're going to get to vaporized!

I usually watch Mythbusters but I missed that one. Not only was the car pancaked, the 1" steel plate was folded like origami, and the 3" concrete backing and the berm were just...gone!

I think they achieved their goal.

I saw the episode last night. All I can say is WOW!

I wanna see them do it again with a bus or another semi.

The display of speed was just amazing. Just shy of Mach 1.

Did you notice the paint spray as the metal crumpled from under it?
You can see the red and white stripes in the air. Amazing episode.
