Fire Medicine

A ninth-century Chinese alchemist made a serendipitous discovery one day while seeking a potion which would give his emperor eternal life. He himself found immortality when he entered the history books -- as the inventor of gunpowder.

[The Chinese characters for "gunpowder" translate literally as "fire medicine."]
