The internet is ridden with clips of people doing crazy, hilarious and downright amazing things and on Outrageous Acts of Science, we highlight the cream of the crop. From human powered flying machines in Canada, space explorers in the UK, backwards talking girls in the US and the New Zealander that built a robot rock band the show counts down a definitive top 20 clips of people doing the extraordinary in each episode.
