Science and technology have had more than their share of the good, the bad, and the bogus. Alfred William Lawson, the designer of the first airliner, believed that two types of creatures lived within the brainù ôMenorgs,ö which were the mental organizers responsible for all good things, and ôDisorgs,ö which infect all cells with disorganization. Chonosuke Okamura collected and catalogued what he thought were tiny men and animals, all 1/100-inch long, which most geologists think are actually mineral grains. Peter Fong found that the expression ôhappy as a clamö had a scientific basis when he tested the effects of Prozac on fingernail clams. The dashing figure of dinosaur hunter Roy Chapman Andrews was the model upon which Indiana Jones was based. Physician John Brinkley believed that consuming goat glands would restore youth and virility. In keeping with the format of the popular ôMost WantedÖö Series, this new volume comprises sixty top-ten lists. These include worst ideas by great scientists, most unlikely inventors, greatest unsolved mysteries, most ridiculous attempts at flight, biggest hoaxes, most suppressed inventions, and top UFO sightings. Science's Most WantedÖshows how throughout history, mankind has tried, often wildly unsuccessfully, to come to grips with lifeÆs biggest questions.
