Can you reflect a blaster bolt with a Lightsaber? Let’s ask the Mythbusters!
The long lasting and never ending Mythbusters show tackled with something big and real this time. The Science behind the Lightsaber and Star Wars in general. In this episode the guys tried to disprove the myth that a person can reflect a blaster fire with a Lightsaber. The end result is… they did it. Once. Well, not too bad for a non Jedi person, don’t you think?
