U.S. net The Weather Channel is uncovering the science behind natural phenomena and weather patterns in its forthcoming original series 3 Scientists Walk Into a Bar.

Through interactive games and experiments, the series has astrophysicist Travis Taylor (pictured, center), statistician Tara Long (left) and “science fanatic” Anthony Carboni (right) explain everyday occurrences with educational experiments and demonstrations.

While the first episode will explore gravity and magnetism using experiments such as the “man versus apple” gravity test and the cloud-simulating balloon chair, other episodes focus on such weather events as lighting and tornadoes.

3 Scientists Walk into a Bar debuts on May 31 at 7 p.m. EST/PST with three back-to-back episodes. The show is to return on October 4 with five additional episodes.
