UPDATE: The 3-episode premiere will be reaired June 10th starting at 8PM CST and June 14th starting at 12PM CST.

Last night was the premier of The Weather Channel's new series "3 Scientists Walk into a Bar." But for those of you who missed the premier, it repeats tonight at 9PM CST on The Weather Channel.

The science behind weather and other natural phenomena is the show's focus. The show is hosted by Travis Taylor, Tara Long and Anthony Carboni and they take a tag-team approach to solving mysteries and finding answers to science questions in intriguing and thought-provoking ways.

Tesla Universe's Cameron B. Prince and Phillip Slawinski helped with several episodes including Tornadoes and Electric Weather which appeared in the 3-episode premier that airs again tonight. The Electric Weather episode features Travis playing guitar along with Phillip's twin DRSSTC coils being played by professional keyboard players. I perform experiments in a Faraday suit connected to our largest Tesla coil and assist Travis in determining if the rule-of-thumb is correct when estimating lightning's distance.

Working with the show was a lot fun and I'm really proud of what we did. Take a look at some of my behind-the-scenes and testing photos in the gallery and check out the show.
