People have sought to understand all areas of life through their senses, careful contemplation, and by raising perplexing questions. The sciences help to address the domain of human inquiry specifically related to the natural world around us. These domains are broken into a number of disciplines including astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics.

Raising questions about the natural world is easy. Answering them is not. The historic development of scientific discoveries rarely went quickly. There were dead ends, fierce rivalries, and scrapped ideas. The work of science brought out the best and the worst in people. 

Come explore stories that reveal how the big ideas of science were developed. Gain understanding of how ideas masquerading as science led to misinformation and disinformation.
