DUBLIN, Calif. — The hosts of the popular Discovery Channel show MythBusters visited a Dublin neighborhood on Wednesday to apologize for the misfired cannonball that rocketed through a home and smashed a minivan window in the area the day before.
Reality television show hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman came to the home to see the damage their cannonball inflicted.
The pair spent several hours investigating the damage and helping to clean up at the house, leaving around 4 p.m. after they promised the homeowners they would take care of the mess.
The hosts told KTVU that cannonball, which was not much bigger than a softball, weighed about 30 pounds and was part of an experiment to see if a cannonball could make it through a castle's walls.
They still don't know exactly how the projectile ended up hundreds of yards from the shooting range where the experiment was being conducted.
