MythBusters – Can A Star Wars Blaster Bolt Be Dodged?

Our favorite heroes in a galaxy far, far away always manage to dodge the blaster bolts of their foes. But could a human actually dodge the blasts of these weapons or are stormtroopers just really bad marksmen? The MythBusters put some extra science into science fiction to find out!” (YouTube)

This is an amusing and detailed video by the MythBusters on whether it is possible to dodge a blaster bolt fired by stormtroopers in Star Wars. Spoiler: no. Not a chance. Conclusion? Stormtroopers are terribad at shooting, are cross-eyed, or their blasters are all faulty.

It was fun watching the darts hit the presenters though. Onwards!
