On March 28, 2006, a group of young men, disguised as movers and armed with phony work orders, arrived on the Caltechâ€™s Pasadena campus. Within a few hours, the crew departed with the collegeâ€™s two-ton Fleming Canon in tow. Eight days later, the canon reappeared 3,000 miles away, on MIT campus, with a massive MIT class ring on its barrel.
The movers, it turns out, were MIT students who had just carried out perhaps the longest-distance MIT hack of all time.
So, How does one borrow a cannon, drive it cross-country, and place it in the middle of a crowded campus, completely undetected? In this episode of the Slice of MIT podcast, weâ€™ll hear from the MIT hackers involved in heist, as we celebrate the prankâ€™s 10-year anniversary. Read more: http://bit.ly/1WuVkQj.
