Imagination, technique and intelligence always took part in realizing the most unusual and also useful inventions in the world. However, there were cases when inventing something was based on an accident and not really on years of research. Here are some of the inventions that accidentally took place and for which we are forever grateful.
Sir Alexander Fleming was the inventor of Penicillin and he was actually looking for a miracle medicine that could cure a wide diversity of diseases. During his research he didn’t find something promising and what it’s more interesting is that only after he finished his experiments he found what he was looking for. In one of the days of the year 1928 Fleming discovered a strange type of mold that dissolved everything around it. He then observed that this mold contained a powerful antibiotic, penicillin, that is ever since used to treat several illnesses.
