Watch how scientists at the University of California, Irvine found a way to unboil hard boiled eggs in their attempt to aid cancer research projects for cheaper drugs
While as a average person we thought of playing games with raw eggs and having fun with hard boiled eggs in our kitchen in terms of both easy recipes and pranks, the scientists at the University of California, Irvine were contemplating about things that no average person can even think of, not to forget we also have how to manuals for how to boil an egg itself. These scientists were indulged in trying to "Unboil" hard boiled eggs as they were trying to figure out a way to avoid the protein samples in their compounds from mixing up as they would intermix when subjected to various experiments in the chemical lab. So these chemists thought if they could find a way to undo a boiled egg to it's liquid state, then they could very well apply the research to costlier proteins like antibodies which would further aid the costly cancer research projects by making the process a lot cheaper with their new found discovery of unboiling a hard boiled egg which will make the cancer and other expensive drugs a lot cheaper than the ones already in the usage.

The chemists team lead by Dr. Gregory Weiss's task was to come up with an invention which can pull apart tangled proteins and allow them to refold to their original state that is lysozyme the clear protein that once was egg. To do this scientists started with egg whites boiled for 20 minutes at 90 degrees Celsius and returned a key protein in the egg to working order, then Dr. Weiss and his colleagues injected urea into the eggs to liquefy the hardened proteins of the boiled egg. After the liquefaction process the collided proteins are separated and returned to their original form using the vortex fluid device, which spins material at high speeds to straighten tangled molecules and returns them to their original shape. The high powered machine is designed by Professor Colin Raston of South Australia's Flinders University which utilizes the principle of applying shear stress within thin micro fluid films to those of tiny pieces forcing them back to their untangled and proper form.
