Press Release Date 
Monday, October 8, 2012


SAN JOSE, CA – When danger called, mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent slid into a nearby phone booth and, faster than a speeding bullet, he emerged as The Man of Steel, bright red cape and blue tights neatly arranged. But can reporters really put on a cape, boots, gloves and other must-have superhero gadgets in the confines of a phone booth? You tell us.

Grab your notebook and head over to The Tech at 11 a.m. on October 11 for a media preview/press conference to kick off the West Coast premiere of MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.

The Exhibition uses interactive technology and a hands-on approach to allow guests to explore the world of science using the same mix of scientific method, gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity as the hosts of Discovery Channel’s Emmy®-nominated series, MythBusters.

WHAT: Join MythBusters co-hosts Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara, San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed and The Tech President Tim Ritchie for a sneak peek at the interactive exhibition dedicated to uncovering truths behind popular myths from flight to friction and gravity to speed.

WHERE: The Tech Museum of Innovation, 201 S. Market St., San Jose CA (Parkside Hall)

WHEN: 11 a.m. (sharp) Thursday, October 11, 2012
