The most terrifying and daring experiments in history

The most terrifying and daring experiments in history 1

If mankind does not carry out experiments , then , probably , it would never have got out of the Stone Age. But where there is a distinction between the need to obtain new data, and morality , which is necessary for this data to sacrifice? 

For some researchers, such a face did not exist at all – and their experiments are still considered one of the most terrifying in the history of the world. Others risked only their own lives or boldly stormed the limits of our civilization’s capabilities.

9 most terrifying and daring experiments in history

The Stormfury project  is an extremely unsuccessful attempt to control the weather in the mid-20th century. The prominent chemist Irving Langmuir came to the conclusion that if you shower storm clouds with silver iodide, they will rain in the right place, and not over the crowded cities. In the same way it was supposed to weaken hurricanes. But instead of fading away, the chosen hurricane headed toward the coastal city of Savannah, bringing death and destruction.

Elephant under LSD

Elephant under LSD . In 1962, researchers from Oklahoma City decided to find out how the Tusco elephant living in the zoo would behave if he was injected with a dose of LSD. The elephant received an injection of 297 mg of the drug – 3 thousand times higher than the normal human … and died in less than an hour. After 20 years, the experiment was repeated, giving LSD to two elephants in the water, and they almost did not notice anything. Perhaps Tusco had an excessive sensitivity to the drug, which the experimenters did not deign to find out.

GT cardiac catheterization

Self-catheterization of the heart GT was first performed in 1928 by the German surgeon Werner Forsmann, and on himself. Using local anesthesia, Forsman conducted a probe through the elbow vein to the right atrium, at 65 centimeters. Fortunately, everything went well, and in 1956, Forsman received the Nobel Prize.

Kola superdeep well

The Kola superdeep well , 12,262 meters deep is officially the deepest well in the world, which was drilled from 1970 to 1990 in the Murmansk region. In the course of the experiment, invaluable information was obtained about the deep structure of the planet, the composition of the rocks and the geothermal regime of the ancient earth’s crust. Unfortunately, at the moment the project is abandoned and the objects on it are gradually being destroyed.

The Large Hadron Collider

The LHC, i.e., the Large Hadron Collider, is the world’s largest charged particle accelerator located in an underground complex on the border of Switzerland and France. The length of the ring is about 27 km, the project is served by more than 10 thousand scientists. During its construction and before launch, evil tongues prophesied the end of the world to the planet, because the collider supposedly could generate “miniature black holes”. Of course, the rumors did not materialize.

Starfish Prime

“Starfish Prime”, one of the US projects for the study of nuclear explosions in outer space . On July 9, 1962, at an altitude of 400 km, a nuclear warhead with a capacity of 1.45 megatons was detonated. Under the influence of an electromagnetic pulse in Hawaii, at a distance of 1,500 km from the epicenter, hundreds of electronic units failed, and three satellites collapsed from orbit.

Resurrection of the dead . American scientist Robert Cornish from 1932 to 1948 conducted experiments on the resuscitation of dead creatures. He set his experiments on dogs, previously killing them with an overdose of ether, and successfully brought them back to life by rocking the body on a movable table with a parallel injection of adrenaline and anticoagulants. He also wanted to test his practice in public (exclusively volunteers), but failed.

Mind control . The Spanish professor Jose Delgado in 1963 discovered that if a small device is implanted in the animal’s brain, then it can be used to completely control his movements and even emotions. 

Fortunately, the matter did not reach the people, but the experiments were already rather creepy.

“Trinity”  – that was the name of the world’s first nuclear weapon test , held July 16, 1945 in the state of New Mexico at the Alamogordo training ground. In less than a month, the exact same plutonium bomb will be dropped on Nagasaki, following the uranium bomb for Hiroshima. Nuclear weapons may have prevented World War III, but in and of themselves they brought an enormous number of victims.
