They say you can't get to Mars without breaking a few eggs. While the most recent SpaceX Starship attempt didn't exactly have a perfect landing, watching the thing from far away lets you see exactly how it straight up looks like a sideways building falling to the earth before very nearly re-righting itself and (almost) sticking the landing.

In this video, YouTubers The Backyard Scientists attempt to recreate a small scale version of a Mythbusters classic.

Oh, and one time the knife blew up. It rocks.
