The Science Now! team brings you an exciting new edition of Great Failures in Science! Today’s failure: Aristotle.

Aristotle’s lifetime of inquiry into physics can be summed up as the following:

* Fire, which is hot and dry.
* Earth, which is cold and dry.
* Air, which is hot and wet.
* Water, which is cold and wet.
* Aether, which is the divine substance that makes up the heavenly spheres and heavenly bodies (stars and planets).

Stay tuned for our next failure: Jesus!
