The 6 Best Science Lessons From Breaking Bad

Goodbye, BB. Thanks for the education. (Don't worry—there are no final-season spoilers here!)

The tale of Walter White, high-school chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin, ended on Sunday, leaving us with only memories, an almost preposterously high body count, and science. _Breaking Bad _wasn’t always flawlessly accurate (why would you use hydrofluoric acid to dissolve a body?), but even when it reached for the crutch of artistic license, it remained grounded in fact. Here we’ve put together six science lessons we learned from Professor White.
