  • Bad Science on June 14, 2012

    The author tells in a simple to understand, humorous way an impressive amount of scientific errors, misconceptions, superstitions, and frauds spread throughout history and across many disciplines. I am an astronomy educator and found a few in my field I was not aware of. However, I'd classify some of the reported episodes (e.g. the initial optical manufacturing errors and inadequate testing of the Hubble Space Telescope) more as scientific blunders than bad science, but this may be a minor classification issue.
