Contacted back in March, the Board of Laser Safety (BLS) assisted in connecting the producers of Rocket City Rednecks with a certified laser safety officer for the filming of tonight’s episode, DIY Death Ray. CLSO Pat Patterson had the time available to lend his LSO expertise and ensure the filming was conducted in a safe manner.
Playing the part of stereotypical “rednecks,” the five highly educated cast members use their advanced knowledge to solve “real world” problems. This usually involves constructing a machine to achieve a particular objective, such as creating a rocket that utilizes moonshine as fuel. In this episode, the Rednecks create a supersized laser-beam weapon made of laser pointers and Blu-ray players.
