Question and answer
What features of the scientific method can help prevent a scientist from being labeled a crackpot?
In general, the scientific method consists of five steps: question, hypothesis, prediction, experiment, analysis. [ The scientists formulates a question that he wants answered, develops a hypothesis to answer the question, makes a prediction about the hypothesis, runs experiments to test the hypothesis, and analyses the results. The true power of the scientific method is its iterative nature.
Rarely is a question answered with one round of experimentation. Hypotheses are shaped and reworked based on the analysis of numerous rounds of experimentation. It is the repeating of the cycle that allows ideas to take shape and the truth to unfold. ]
