Explosives Engineers' New TV Series
January 30, 2009

Wednesday, January 28th, was the date for the premiere of “The Detonators,” a new Discovery Channel series featuring an explosives expert from Missouri University of Science and Technology and one of his former students. The 13-part series is co-hosted by Dr. Paul Worsey, professor of mining engineering at Missouri S&T, and Dr. Braden Lusk, assistant professor of mining engineering at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Worsey is Missouri S&T’s chief explosives expert, and Dr. Lusk earned a bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. in mining engineering from Missouri S&T (then known as the University of Missouri-Rolla) in 2000 and 2006, respectively.

“The Detonators” is a co-production of RDF USA and IWC, an RDF-owned company in Scotland. Having debuted at 7 p.m. CDT January 28th, the Discovery Channel series will follow Dr. Worsey and Dr. Lusk as they met the blasters behind such structures as urban skyscrapers, massive steel bridges and giant stadiums. The hour-long episodes will also show Dr. Worsey and Dr. Lusk giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the demolitions. Visit The Detonators on for more information.
