Breaking Bad did something most high school science teachers can only dream about: it made chemistry cool. Walter White is portrayed as a scientific super-genius in the TV show, at points almost reaching mad scientist levels of ingenuity. There doesn't seem to be a situation that Walt can't science his way out of, which leads to some pretty mindblowing stuff throughout the series.
But how accurate is Breaking Bad, really? Are all of those science hacks something you could use in real life, or are they just more examples of Hollywood getting the science wrong? Let's take a closer look at the science hacks from Breaking Bad to see just how smart Walt was after all.
