Generally speaking, science is most important thing in authenticity, but in so-called sensational scientific "achievements" of recent years, there are a lot of fakes and low-quality products.
1. Bermuda's Triangle of Death
Among many scientific hoaxes, legend of "Bermuda" is most influential and widespread case, but its origin is just that of a few American airmen during World War II. Since Bermuda is located in middle of Pacific Ocean, to attract more tourists, government of Bermuda not only did not try to explain this allegedly non-existent "triangle of death", but also exaggerated it, and even colorfully printed it in tourist brochures. Prior to 1980, US and Australian scientific expeditions jointly issued a statement saying, "There is nothing supernatural in Bermuda." However, rumors continued to circulate around world. Until 16 years later, there were still "scientists" who claimed to have "discovered" "Mystery of Bermuda".
2. Loch Ness Monster
The origin of Loch Ness "monster" is stranger than "Bermuda". Decades ago, a fuzzy photo of Loch Ness "monster" shocked scientific community, and Gass, who took this photo, was a local tourist registrar. Ten years ago, he admitted that so-called Loch Ness "monster" was fused with washing machine drainpipes, Styrofoam and plastic buckets - millions of pounds of tourism revenue.
3. "Discovery" of Noah's Ark
In 1984, British archaeologists announced that they had 'discovered' 'Noah's Ark' recorded in 'Bible' in Egypt and circulated many images. But in fact, according to "Bible", Noah's Ark has a reserved place for every species in world. Based on this calculation, so far no man can build such a large ship. More importantly, Noah's ark described in Bible has never been to Egypt and has never tried to approach it.
4. Mummies with “artificial hearts”
In 1991, some "scientists" claimed to have found a mummy with an "artificial heart" in pyramid, and this heart is still beating, they say that it is made of "black crystal". But fact is that all mummies in pyramid have now been moved to museum, and no one can see mummies inside pyramid in 1991.
5. "Superconductor" at room temperature
In December 1989, Indian scientists announced that they had succeeded in "manufacturing" a superconductor at room temperature. This alloy still has zero resistance at 37°C, and until today most advanced superconducting alloy also needs to be cooled down to -100°C. °С about. Interestingly, shortly after this, Sri Lankan "scientists" also announced that they had created a superconductor at room temperature. As a result, two scientifically underdeveloped countries overnight became "technical powers".
6. Craft tomatoes
In mid-1980s, a British lab announced that it had successfully transplanted cow genes into tomato genes, resulting in a finished product with cowhide-like skin and tomato-like flesh. This discovery shocked world. It wasn't long before people found out that cowhide tomato news was out on April Fool's Day.
7. The Star Wars Project
The "plan" announced by US President Reagan called for US to install three laser "defense lines" in space to defend against possible nuclear attacks. Some uninformed American scientists pointed to its inoperability, but in former Soviet Union they believed and invested hundreds of billions of dollars in creation of Star Wars system, which led to a waste of money and labor. A few years later, US government announced that Star Wars project was a ploy to fool former Soviet government and that US had never put a dime into idea.
8. Rewrite laws of thermodynamics
Also in mid-1980s, a Sri Lankan student living in UK claimed to have discovered that laws of thermodynamics were wrong because hot water freezes faster in a refrigerator than cold water. Like craft tomatoes, student announced his “discovery” on April 1st.
9. Capture "alien" alive
In United States, there are an average of 200 "sights" and "ETs" reported daily, with an average of more than 10 reports of "aliens" being captured alive. It's funny that a psychologist in United States, after research, came to conclusion that anyone who claims to have seen aliens cannot actually see aliens.
10. Infrasonic weapon
In 1984, several French scientists announced that they had "invented" infrasonic weapons. While activated, it will emit "infrasound" to kill people within a 10 kilometer radius. They claimed to have accidentally launched it, but these "scientists" did not lose their lives due to this "inattention".
