These irresistible stories reveal the little-known byways of scientific progress, where setbacks and mishaps are the norm, breakthroughs are the exception, and advances meant to improve people's lives can spectacularly backfire. Meticulously researched by the internationally acclaimedNew Scientist magazine, these stories are an inspiring reminder of how the most unpromising lines of enquiry can sometimes, against all the odds, lead to brilliant results.
