When Science Goes Wrong, It Can Be So Beautifully Right

 Science, Nature’s hard-headed sister, is a beautiful, wonderful and powerful mistress, perfectly encapsulating the explainable and unexplainable and swiftly reducing the world we live in to complex yet precise equations tailor-made for our understanding and convenience. For those of us on the less knowledgeable side of the looking glass, there is a side to science that we can also enjoy, away from the numbers, formulas and complexities.

These strange happenstance experiments resulted in some truly hilarious and absolutely dazzling scientific reactions, proving that accidental science can be fun and informative when the carefully crafted research conducted inside laboratories finds a fascinating way into our everyday lives.
