20 hilariously weird scientific research projects

Every fall, Harvard invites scientists from all over the world to laugh at themselves. The Ig Nobel Prize, or the Anti-Nobel Prize, is awarded to the weirdest and most dubious scientific discoveries — or those seemingly so. They make you laugh at first, and then second thoughts start coming.

We at WeGoRo have looked through the archives of the award and found out which ridiculous issues must be solved or which crazy ideas justified obtaining this ’valuable’ prize. For example, a trillion Zimbabwe dollars...in one banknote.
