jackpot experiment 


A popular term for an experiment designed with the hope that the results will corroborate an unusual scientific phenomenon.

*Goal-oriented research is rarely rewarded with the desired “jackpot”. Most research proceeds with the plodding of the Tortoise in Aesop’s The Tortoise and the Hare.

Whilst the term appears to fill a lexical void, it only got 108 hits on 19.05.2015, not all of which were relevant. It is not commonly used in the working biomedical parlance.
