I think one of the famous experiments in the world is the CERN accelerator.

Hello everyone!! well I'd hear about experiments with atomic particles moving in circles at incredible speed, what they are trying to do is create new energy frome that particle movement.

this really an ausome thing which i have never met with this type of a think which is interesting biggggg!!!!!!! fan now on words 4 ur course

I have completed A Lecture About Experiment. The level I chose was Upper Intermediate B2.

Sorry I really do not know.

i think i have read about big car industry companies (like tessla & wolex) testing their auto-driving cars in roads.they have lunched the test a few years ago and those cars have passed long distances through highways in america without any problem.

interesting and a good-to-know-story!
Thanks!

Do you know of any other famous experiments? What are they?

Current famous experiments are the Elon Musk's Neurolink to integrate an eletronic chip into our brain to boost its creative thinking, data processing and many other capabilities of the brain. It sounds to me like a Johnny Memonic The Keanu Reeves Old Sci-Fi Movie, but I hope this will work harmlessly with our Bio Organ Structured Brain.

Another one so far is the Uber's Driverless Cars experiment and that is now nearly a success without any casualties. Another exiciting news is the Japanese's Flying Car Experiment and it is now successful. But will take some time to bring for our everday use with low cost.

Hi,

Could you please explain, why the sentence "He never saw the pitch drop" about Professor John Mainstone is true?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Adam

Hi Adam,

The text does not say directly that John Mainstone did not see the pitch drop, but that is certainly the implication. We are told that he missed seeing it three times and if he had seen it we would expect this to be mentioned (He finally saw it in...). Furthermore, the question asks 'Which of the following sentences is not true...?'). The singular verb ('is') tells us that we are looking for one sentence, not two, and the third sentence is clearly not true. By a process of elimination, therefore, we can see that the first sentence must be true.
