The experiment failed but left a rather strange mark.

mark:
physical?
on someone?
a tattoo?
did the creation of the mark hurt someone one?

experiment:
done by one person? done by a team?
was it done in a science lab (with all the proper equipment)? was it really an experiment? or was it something that happened because of a combination of things?

goats:
are there goats involved in this puzzle?

Did this come from your own imagination?news?t.v?book?play?
Would guessing the shape of mark be helpful?
Are only humans involved? If not are there aliens involved in this puzzle?
Were these assuming they are human scientists? Or were they just curious about something because of what had occured where they lived?
Was anyone trying to achieve immortality?

Was this a "mark on history"? A significant change in some field?
When the experiment failed, was something else discovered? Invented?

Was it a scientific experiment?
It failed = it produced no result? an unexpected result? a result that had negative consequences?
