Warning! Science Content

Sometimes we’re having so much fun, we forget that all of this MythBusting is actually SCIENCE! Follow your curiosity and use the links below to discover more of the science behind the myths at MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.


Change Like a Superhero

Being a superhero takes a lot more than super powers and fighting crime—or even a super-cool pair of spandex tights. Does the ability to change from regular clothes into a snazzy outfit (that only a super-mom could love) a feat of superhuman speed and strength? Well, those factors certainly don’t hurt. But for the rest of us, changing from one outfit to another is a matter of coordination, accuracy, reflexes and a little planning.
