The internet is filled with wild videos of people who have unwittingly put science to the test. They've wondered what would happen if they attached rockets to a skateboard. And if a concrete canoe can float. And how many leaf blowers it takes to power a homemade hovercraft. Many of these videos garner millions of views because their exploits have failed, often with hilarious consequences. Now, Science Channel is experimenting with some of the internet's most infamous video flubs in its newest series WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?, world premiering Saturday, February 7 at 10 PM ET/PT. In each of ten episodes, real-life friends Kevin Moore and Grant Reynolds decipher what went wrong in the most outrageous internet video fails and make it their personal mission to successfully recreate each experiment with sound science and a little personal creativity.
