The scientific idea of an experiment is that you come up with some observations, form a hypothesis, and then test the hypothesis using experiment. If it checks out, then the hypothesis becomes a theory, and eventually part of a law.
Actually, what is tested is the null hypothesis, that is, you try and prove that nothing happens. If that “fails” then usually it means the experiment has been a success.
DC said today in the chatroom that experiments were a good thing. Follow his suggestions, read his essays, and try and prove that nothing happens.
Each has to prove this for themSelves.
