Dan Shechtman (2019) - Scientific Blunder


My talk will tell the stories of several bad science experiments, resulting in announcements on important discoveries, performed by very good and famous scientists. The announcements gained media coverage, public attention and great expectations from politicians, the industry and academic followers. The scientific community broadened the new scientific fields and it took time to realize that the discovery announced is bad science. The fate of the scientists involved and the consequences until our times will be discussed.
