Not all scientists are as careful as you might think, and not all science is as well planned as you might hope! Watch as Professor Adam Hart tells the stories of discoveries made by accident, luck, or just plain carelessness, which have nevertheless changed the world. With demonstrations by the Cheltenham Science Group, this lecture brings alive the science, accident and luck of discoveries from dynamite and Vaseline to penicillin and the microwave oven.
