Obama to appear on episode of 'Mythbusters'


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama will appear on a December episode of the Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters."

The television show uses science to determine the truth behind urban legends.  Discovery says the episode considers this question: Did Greek scientist Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun?

The White House says the president's appearance is part of his administration's push to promote math and science education.

The episode will premiere on December 8.
