Runaway Trailer

Millions of Americans travel while towing all kinds of heavy trailers but what happens when the brakes burn out while going downhill? The Smash Lab crew has an idea that involves using retro firing rockets to bring trailers to a safe, controlled stop -- a not-so-crazy notion that could be both safe and reliable. After an extended bout of rocket science, the team comes to grips with space shuttle technology for the road.
