“Impossible” Ideas That Have Changed Our Lives:
Scientists Were Wrong When They Scoffed at Crazy Theories, Inventions and Cures
In the newest of their best-sellers––Science Was Wrong: Startling Truths About Cures, Theories, and Inventions “They” Declared Impossible––authors Stanton T. Friedman, MSc and Kathleen Marden have collected fascinating stories about the pioneers who created or thought up “impossible” ideas that were deemed crazy nonsense, yet ultimately revolutionized our world.
During the last two centuries, a veritable explosion of new cures, theories, techniques, and inventions have transformed and modernized aviation, space travel, medicine, communications and warfare, to name a few fields. Initially, many of them were deemed unworkable, even preposterous. For instance, before the Wright brothers flew for the first time at Kitty Hawk, a top scientist declared that “no possible combination of known substances, machinery and forms of force can be united in a practical flying machine...”
How many people have suffered or died while waiting for new cures to be accepted?
How many inventions have been ignored or quashed?
How much human progress was delayed space travel, warfare and other endeavors?
Science Was Wrong is an eye-opening read filled with in-depth research and written in a captivating style.
