    I think the experiment itself would be safe to try at home. But creating the microgravity environment in which to conduct the experiment could be a little tricky...

    He had pre conceived ideas, all of which were wrong as proved by the experiment. So he changed the ideas, not the data from the experiment.

    That was cool.
