WATCH: The Ten Creepiest Science Experiments

The world of science has brought us a plethora of possibilities and new discoveries about ourselves and our environment. It is because of science that some of the world’s diseases that were once feared are now no more than a common annoyance rather than a death sentence. Science is a life of trial and error of experiments that are meant to bring a breakthrough that will shake what we know about our world. Sometimes the road to these achievements and discoveries is sometimes a rocky one that the history books should forget. But at the same time, some of these endeavors are so disturbing that one has to wonder what exactly was the motivation and intention behind that specific experiment. The following experiments are some of the creepiest experiments that scientists have dove into, and it does nothing more than leave chills in our spines and make us wonder what we are doing with our knowledge and resources around us.

For example, Professor Kevin Warwick is considered to be the world’s first cyborg. His journey to having cybernetic enhancements and chips implanted into him was a personal endeavor, as he is the world’s expert on cybernetics. He can even interface with the university’s Wi-Fi! From computer chips to electrodes, Professor Warwick just may well have discovered the key to immortality in some form or another.

Then we have Dr. Duncan MacDougall, who had a theory that all bodies really do have living souls and that the souls have some sort of mass. He weighed numerous patients as they laid dying, and once their final breath was taken, proceeded to weigh them again. His conclusion was that the soul weighed 21 grams, since that was the difference with all of his patients in their weight before and after death.

In the 1500’s, a man by the name of Paracelsus tried to create a mini-human by implanting a human egg inside a horse, and then proceeded to feed the horse human blood. The experiment was never successful (thank goodness). Speaking of animals, a group of researchers gave an elephant named Tusko, a hefty dose of LSD in order to produce a temporary rage that male elephants sometimes experience. However, it seemed as though the researchers overdid it on the LSD and subsequently killed Tusko.

If you were ever wondered whether Frankenstein’s experiments could be real, just talk to Dr. Robert E. Cornish, who revived two dead dogs with a teeter system. The dogs were successfully revived after being clinically dead. A prisoner on death row volunteered to be the first human test subject, but the judge quickly vetoed the idea, as the concern of double jeopardy came up…meaning that there was some faith that Cornish’s experiment could work on a human.
The crazy thing is that these aren’t even the creepiest experiments on this list. What awaits you in the video is head swapping, wooly mammoth cloning, and adding an extra head to dogs. With all of these creepy and crazy experiments, one has to wonder; how far is too far in the name of science?
