Adam and Jamie tackle a request from the highest ranking viewer of all: the President of the United States. President Obama tells Adam and Jamie that he'd like them to retest the myth of the Archimedes Solar Ray--this time with more manpower. The myth, which says that Greek scientist Archimedes set fire to an invading fleet using only mirrors and the sun, has been tested by MythBusters twice before (and busted). After developing a unique mirror aiming system, Adam and Jamie use the President's STEM connections and enlist 500 student volunteers ready to light a fire for science!
