A great discovery can come about through determined, careful research, or through lucky serendipity; almost like magic. In a recent episode, Wind & Rhythm explored Archimedes' "Eureka!" moment, in which discovery occurred while pursuing an activity outside the lab; bathing, in fact. If one were to compare how many important discoveries happen in the lab to how many happen from an accidental epiphany, what would the ratio be, and how would one distinguish between what one might call a "scientific approach" and a "lucky chance”?
