What keeps you drier? Running or walking through the rain? Test this and other myths at the hands-on “MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition” at the Fleet Science Center that’s opening Saturday.
Just like on the popular MythBusters TV show, you can put some commonly held beliefs to the test using scientific methods. Does toast really always land butter-side down? and why?
The exhibition runs through Sept. 3 (including holidays). Tickets are $5 in addition to the museum admission.
