This TV show promises to be a real blast

[blatant PR ploy]

Tonight’s premiere episode of The Detonators, a new Discovery Channel series featuring Missouri S&T’s resident explosives expert and one of his former students (now a prof at the University of Kentucky), promises to be a real blast.

The program begins at 7 p.m. Rolla Standard Time (otherwise known as Central Standard Time) today (Wednesday, Jan. 28) and will air every Wednesday at the same time. This is a big deal for our campus — getting national media exposure for one of our professors, one of our alumni, and our university’s new name, all in one 13-week prime-time cable TV series.

So, record American Idol if you must, but don’t miss this debut of Paul Worsey and Braden Lusk as they burst onto the television scene.

If you can’t wait until the show’s premiere, here’s a little promo to whet your appetite:

Watch The Detonators blow up a car at the S&T Experimental Mine.

Who says engineering is boring? The Detonators are out to blow up that stereotype.

  1. Very cool! You can’t buy publicity like that. My son will love the show, I’m sure. Congrats on a publicity coup.
