Grant Imahara died earlier this week, ending a life and career that saw the electrical engineer and robotoicist become one of the mostly reliably charming and informed faces in the world of science-minded TV. Now, both Discovery and Science Channel have announced that they’ll be paying tribute to Imahara this weekend, running marathons of his work on Killer Robots, White Rabbit Project, and especially MythBusters on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
In addition to the marathons—which will run from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Discovery on Friday, and from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Science Channel on Saturday—Discovery also posted the above tribute video to Imahara, showing many of his most infectiously delightful moments of building things, designing things, and, more often than not, blowing them up. You can see the full schedule for the tribute marathons below.
