Mythical Creatures

Legends of Dragons and Unicorns have captured our imaginations for centuries. It was once believed fire-breathing, flying lizards, called dragons once existed. Unicorns were believed to have been able to fly, create rainbows, clean dirty water and heal the sick. Is it possible, creatures such as this once existed? It's easy to dismiss these far-fetched whimsical ideas as purely fictional. However, as we delve deeper, we discover that scientific principles are often more unbelievable than the myths themselves. Join us as we learn about fire, rainbows and flight and attempt to separate myth from reality.
