I also became interested in chemistry and gradually accumulated enough test tubes and other glassware to do chemical experiments, using small quantities of chemicals purchased from a pharmacy supply house.
The experiments show quite clearly that, as you resist more and more temptation, you're actually more and more likely to fail.
Our experiments not only proved the existence of a nervous apparatus in the above-mentioned glands, but also disclosed some facts clearly showing the participation of these nerves in normal activity.
I remember, in the winter of our first experiments, just seven years ago, looking on snow with new eyes.
Edward M. Purcell
In deference to American traditions, my family put our oven to rare use at Thanksgiving during my childhood, with odd roast-turkey experiments involving sticky-rice stuffing or newfangled basting techniques that we read about in magazines.
For each of us who appear to have had a successful experiment there are many to whom their own experiments seem barren and negative.
We're going to be focusing our science on things that will take us farther and longer into space. For many of those experiments, the crew members are human guinea pigs, which is fine; that's part of my job. I don't mind being a human guinea pig.
John L. Phillips
I was not surprised by the results of the Horizon experiments, but I remain willing to observe and consider any and all other tests that are done under similarly precise conditions.
Simultaneously, the movie business now experiments with a colorblind approach to casting.
The history of using mice to stand in for humans in medical experiments is replete with failures.
There are relatively few experiments in atomic physics these days that don't involve the use of a laser.
Eric Allin Cornell
I run a design studio in New York. Every seven years, I close it for one year to pursue some little experiments, things that are always difficult to accomplish during the regular working year. In that year, we are not available for any of our clients. We are totally closed. And as you can imagine, it is a lovely and very energetic time.
Biologically the species is the accumulation of the experiments of all its successful individuals since the beginning.
H. G. Wells
I make it clear why I write as I do and why other poets write as they do. After hundreds of experiments I decided to go my own way in style and see what would happen.
I have had positive experiences with cameras. When I have been asked to join experiments using cameras in the courtroom, I have participated; I have volunteered.
You make observations, write theories to fit them, try experiments to disprove the theories and, if you can't, you've got something.
With science, there is this culture of experimentation, and most of the time, those experiments fail.
Psychologists really aim to be scientists, white-coat stuff, with elaborate statistics, running experiments.
Well, we spend an awful lot of our time working and doing experiments. It's very busy up on the shuttle.
Social innovation thrives on collaboration; on doing things with others, rather than just to them or for them: hence the great interest in new ways of using the web to 'crowdsource' ideas, or the many experiments involving users in designing services.
I wanted to figure out how long to cook things. I did some experiments and then wrote a program using Mathematica to model how heat is transferred through food.
When the scientific method came into being, it gave us a new window on the truth; namely, a method by laboratory-controlled experiments to winnow true hypotheses from false ones.
Developmental scientists like me explore the basic science of learning by designing controlled experiments.
Scientists learn about the world in three ways: They analyze statistical patterns in the data, they do experiments, and they learn from the data and ideas of other scientists. The recent studies show that children also learn in these ways.
I consider all my films experiments.
