Discovery and Science Channel Pay Tribute to Grant Imahara

Discovery and Science Channel announced that it will pay tribute to Grant Imahara with a marathon line-up of MythBusters and other engineering programs. Imahara, a long-time co-host of the hit series MythBusters, BattleBots champion and famed engineer, passed away earlier this week from a brain aneurism at the age of 49.

Imahara was part of the Mythbusters team for 10 years, where his dedication to his craft and his ability to bust myths with the best of them brought tech to life for his fans. The programming line-up on Discovery and Science Channel will feature some of Imahara's favorite MythBusters moments including a test to see whether an armor made of folded paper would hold up against an attack and whether a hotel room shower curtain could be turned into a life-saving parachute.

In Killer Robots: Robo Games 2011, Imahara serves as tour guide through the International Robogames Competition, following everyday engineers and backyard brainiacs as they produce mechanized mayhem that's as ingenious as it is dangerous. And in White Rabbit Project: May G Force Be with You, Imahara serves as co-host, learning how adrenaline junkies get their biggest G-force rush.
