Image 1 / 10

Hosted by Kari Byron of MYTHBUSTERS, LDRS takes viewers to the Finger Lakes in New York, where rock stars of extreme rocketry compete in this main event of fast-flying homemade missiles. More than 200 rocketeers and crowds of thousands gathered to watch the World Series of rocket ship rivalries. These diehard amateur builders use anything and everything to construct their original, hand-designed catapulted creations-from a flying pig to an antique television to a 400-pound snowmobile.

LDRS takes viewers on a wild ride giving them a peek into the unusual subculture of these eclectic engineers as larger-than-life characters and part-time mad scientists fight it out to have the fastest and fiercest sky rocketing invention.
