DESCRIPTION: (from Science Channel's press release, June 2009) Imagine a storied $1,800 Gibson Les Paul guitar surrounded on all sides by a chemical compound that burns at more than 4,500 degrees Fahrenheit. Cringe as a timer counts down to the detonation of one year's supply 672 bottles of beer. Picture an expensive scooter being launched off an 80-foot long ramp suspended 26 feet off the ground. What fate will meet all of these treasured items? Total annihilationunless three skilled challengers use science wisely to invent, design and build a contraption within 48 hours that will save the cherished prize. If they can catch it, they can keep it in Science Channel's all-new series CATCH IT KEEP IT premiering Friday, July 17, 2009, at 10 PM (ET/PT).
