I've been working on & reading about Accidental Plastics. So like something that was a mistake, but yet it was new invention. My thought right now is 8 pool balls, do you know what their made out of?? The material of it? Well there was a man called, John Wesley Hyatt he's a scientist. He tried to win a prize by using cellulose, plant-based material. Mix with other ingredients. He accidentally spilt some, he noticed that the mixture formed a thin film that was strong and flexible. It was a Billiard plastic form. PLASTIC, accidentally made.
