Jessi Combs, Race Car Driver and ‘Mythbusters’ Host, Dies at 36 Trying to Break Her Own Speed Record
Back in December of last year, MythBusters had an accident while running a calibration test on a cast iron cannonball. They were trying to find out whether cannonballs made of various materials would do the same damage to a castle that steel cannonballs could. While running speed calibration tests, they had a misfire, and the barrel of the cannon lifted. The cannonball ricocheted off the hillside behind the famous Alameda County Bomb Range and flew yards into a nearby subdivision. The errant round penetrated one home and bounced off the roof of another before coming to land in a parked minivan. Luckily, no one was hurt.

Planning and some experimentation took place at Hyneman's workshops in San Francisco; experiments requiring more space or special accommodations were filmed on location, typically around the San Francisco Bay Area and other locations in northern California , going to other states or even countries on occasion when required.
