These Pics Show That Accidental Science Can Be Amazing Too

Didn’t we all love spending time in the science lab at school and learn some cool experiments? Even though we might not have been good at conducting those experiments ourselves, a lot of us liked to imagine producing something neat and awesome with our science kit. Well, it seems that dream has lived on and common people still carry out some scientific experiments around the world; albeit unintentionally.
Here, we have collected some really cool pictures showing some accidental experiments with fascinating results that were performed or captured by common men and women.
