Every day, scientists, and technicians work tirelessly to create new inventions that will have a positive effect on our lives. But imagine if you were an inventor whose creation was suddenly used in a completely different and terrible way - how would that make you feel? Inventors and inventions are like parents and children, and when they see their creations turned inside out, it can have a horrible effect on them. Scientists like Arthur Galston, the accidental inventor of Agent Orange, have had to watch as their beloved work was turned into a killing machine. But some people just make bad inventions.
