Dr Karl’s Outrageous Acts of Science is a 10 x 60 minute factual series hosted by Australia’s most popular science guru, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki. It’s an entertaining, fast-paced countdown of the world’s most amazing backyard science experiments, filmed by the DIY Einstein’s themselves.

These Internet heroes are creating bizarre experiments, making extraordinary inventions and performing all sorts of mind-boggling scientific stunts. So we’ve assembled a crack team of Aussie science experts and pop culture enthusiasts to run the microscope over everything they do – and crown the very best.

Filmed across multiple countries, including Australia and New Zealand, we analyse and rate the biggest and most epic viral videos to ever hit the web.

From moguls of mayhem and insane web mind-benders to the biggest crowd pleasers of all time, this is science – but not as you know it.

This is Dr Karl’s Outrageous Acts of Science.
