Most advances in science are made through painstaking, goal-oriented lab work to find the results that a researcher is trying to find.

But many of the most incredible discoveries in the world came about when someone found something they weren't looking for. In some cases, these are the result of a true accident.

This project focuses on the greatest accidental scientific discoveries made throughout history and the contribution they have made to their scientific field.

Try to discover them all yourself.
