Thanks, Obama

Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman and the rest of the Mythbusters team are preparing to say their final goodbye to fans, but first, it was someone else's turn to say thanks.

President Obama recently recorded a goodbye message for Mythbusters squad, thanking them for the years they spent dedicated to advancing the public's knowledge on everything related to science, math and engineering. He added that without them, there would be an entire generation of children who may never have been inspired to go into a STEM related career.

Savage and Hyneman announced in October that after 14 seasons and over 200 episodes, this would be their last. Since their time on the air, the Mythbusters team has proven that the moon landing was real — uh, d'uh — and that after the Titanic had sunk, Jack simply wouldn't have fit on the door Rose used to survive.

The final Mythbusters episode airs March 5 at 8 p.m. ET on Discovery.
