MythBusters Examines "Myth" That It's Perfectly Safe To Fire a Cannonball Into A Residential Neighborhood; Myth Status? "Busted"

They were firing into a target of water barrels, but they missed. And it flew into a neighborhood at 1000 feet per second.

No one was hurt, but suburban Dublin, CA, was surprised to find an iron ball smashing into a minivan and crashing into a house.

They were actually examining the myth that you can fire other materials out of a cannon and do some damage (that's a myth? is there anyone doubting that?), and I guess this was an earlier test-firing to show the power of an actual cannon round.

Thanks to Dr. Spank.
