THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS HERE: Can A Chevy Impala With 6 JATO Rockets Fly To The Sky!?
Once a man tried this experiment on his own but he couldn’t beat the science on his own and finished the try infamously, unfortunately he passed away. But don’t even consider to repeat this stupidity on your own because we have the MythBusters, Adam and Jamie whose main job is to bust and kick some myths.
This time in their episode is featured the myth for airborne cars. For this purpose they built a jump ramp and transformed a Chevy Impala into the ultimate car-made rocket, powered by 6 JATO rockets. They were right behind the car in a safe cage specially built on dump truck to protect them in case something with the experiment go wrong. The Impala was equipped with video monitoring and remote steering which you can see on the video and it was ruled by Jamie, such a lust we had better preview on the event than them.
On the beginning the experiment started well, the car was accelerating slowly to the jump ramp until the moment the rocket team activated the six JATO rockets and in just few second the car reached 200mph before the epic jump to the sky! Unfortunately the rocket didn’t improve the car aerodynamics which is not made for such occasions and the car made few flip overs before it crashed on pieces.
Watch the unbelievable video bellow where the MythBusters busted the myth!
