Chad Orzel, the Gordon Gould Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy, is one of the authors included in a new book from MIT Press. “Pseudoscience: The Conspiracy Against Science” examines the phenomenon of pseudoscience from a wide variety of perspectives. Orzel's chapter, "Scientific Failure as a Public Good: Illustrating the Process of Science and Its Contrast with Pseudoscience," examines two high-profile failures in physics and shows that the behavior of the scientists involved is readily distinguishable from that of purveyors of pseudoscience.
