Adam Savage gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the final days shooting the long-running show "MythBusters" by tweeting photos and videos. Few things are harder than saying goodbye to a job you love, especially when that job entails blowing stuff up, crashing cars, jumping out of buildings and playing with sharks in the name of science. But on Wednesday, Adam Savage began the hard process of saying goodbye to his gig as co-host of "MythBusters" by giving fans a final behind-the-scenes look at the the show on its last day of filming. Discovery Channel announced last month that its longest-running series will end in January after one final season, leaving many fans shocked and saddened that they'd soon have to bid farewell to Savage and co-host Jamie Hyneman. Neither Discovery Channel nor the show's hosts offered details on why the show is being canceled.

Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman might be the poster boys for MythBusters, but Kari Byron's light has arguably shined just as brightly as theirs. As a founding member of the Build Team and the only female host of the series, she was a long-time staple of the show and as active a figure as any of the men. As Verge notes, her resourcefulness, enthusiasm, and the respect she got from her co-hosts made her one of the few public figures who made good role models for young girls who like science and learning. However, her path to fame hasn't been all laughter and explosions. In , Savage told Mic about the sheer amount of criticism and resistance Byron has had to deal with just because she happens to be a woman in a heavily male-leaning industry. In fact, her road to becoming a famous science communicator and public figure has been full of strange occurrences that her upbeat facade might not immediately suggest.
