The Detonators
Join explosives experts Dr. Braden Lusk and Dr. Paul Worsey for a backstage pass to the world's biggest and toughest demolition jobs. From urban skyscrapers and massive steel bridges to giant stadiums and towering cranes, you'll meet the highly-skilled blasters who can bring down any structure with pinpoint accuracy. Using special sacrifice cameras and high-speed camera technology, our experts will give you a unique, behind-the-scenes look at how demolition specialists take down engineering giants with the push of a button. The Detonators was a reality series documentary that aired on the Discovery Channel. The program featured the thought process and procedures in performing demolition through the use of explosives. The show was hosted by two demolition experts: Dr. Braden Lusk, an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky College of Engineering, and Dr. Paul Worsey, professor and director of explosives engineering education at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Lusk and Worsey gave the viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the science of destroying large structures without damaging the surrounding buildings and landscapes. The Detonators consisted of a single season with 13 episodes airing between January and July of 2009. No additional episodes have been produced since then, and the Discovery Channel's official website no longer carries information about the program.
