SeanChron - President Obama on Mythbusters

After months of buzz, the 'President's Challenge' episode of Mythbusters in which President Obama challenges Adam and Jamie to re-test the myth of the Archimedes Solar Ray with proper manpower (500 high school students) aired on Discovery this evening. I watched and needless to say, I was pretty psyched. The President of the US is talking about science, he's doing it on Mythbusters, and the project involves elements of science, design, and culture...cool, Cool, and COOL. President Obama mentions that he and the girls are fascinated by science and are fans of Mythbusters because they have fun and make science exciting and interesting. The episode trailer appears below, a quick internet search will find many clips of the program, as well as pre- and post- show discussions (CNN's is particularly entertaining).
