Summary
Meticulously researched by the internationally acclaimed New Scientist magazine, these stories of haphazard discovery, delusion, and greed include the doctor who thought he could cure madness with a quick spin in a centrifuge, the engineer who came up with a radio that ran on gas, and the two young men who dug a giant hole and discovered the center of the galaxy
