Weird Science

Just caught the Mythbusters episode in which President Obama asked them to revisit their test of the Archimedes mirror experiment.

They committed enormous resources to retrying an experiment that had failed miserably before, with only trivial variation. They set the threshold for success unrealistically low, but still managed to fail utterly in an embarrassing anticlimax.

Yup. It was an Obama episode.
