Once I saw what the problem was and the solution being used, I knew what the end result was going to be. I think an Army Demo Team could have directed the blast and debris better. I also think that the end result would have been the same except for the amount of debris blown back to the beach.

If they really wanted to "vaporize" most of the whale, a 1-5kt atomic weapon would have done that and a few miles radius as well.

From the Discovery Channel:

Discovery Channel is searching for a male host to go on location for the weekly series "Super Testing." The show explores the world of extreme testing – a world of explosions, planned crashes, and controlled chaos.

The show is produced on a level as big as the subjects it covers. There are no scale models. No recreations. No "staged reality". Our cameras are involved in actual tests conducted by the U.S. military, government agencies, corporations and inventors around the world.

We’re looking for someone who is:

* In his late 30s to early 40s.

* Smart – he needs to be credible in his interactions with scientists and engineers. Science, stuntman, or engineering background is a strong plus. He does not have to be an “expert” in science or engineering per se, but should grasp the science or engineering concepts at least well enough to ask the kind of intelligent questions that our intelligent viewers appreciate.

* Tough, but an “Everyman” – He should be credible dealing with military officials, mechanics, pilots, test subjects – the whole range of folks who build things and sometimes blow things up all in the name of progress. Military, construction, or mechanical engineering background is a strong plus. He should come off as knowledgeable but likeable – and definitely a man’s man.

* Charismatic, but not too “hosty” – He should be able to explain the who-what-where-when-how of the testing in a clear, direct, and always conversational way. We need someone who seems comfortable in his own skin and comfortable on camera. But he should also be comfortable letting the light shine on the real stars of the show – the people who he encounters, who make “super testing” a reality.


Casting ends in a few days, so you'd better hurry!
