Thought science was just for well serious stuff like how the actual universe was created and cloning sheep? 

Think again - because apparently it can also be used to determine which member of One Direction is the most attractive. 

We know, we know, they're all equally beautiful forever and ever amen - but let's take a look anyway because hey, it's educational. 

In fact, if your mum comes in and asks what you're doing, you can legit say 'homework' because it's SCIENCE.

So basically, a Swiss university created a website alongside dating app BLINQ, which tells you how attractive you are by measuring your facial dimensions. 

It also guesses age and gender, claiming  claiming that it can "predict 76% of the ratings correctly solely based on an image". Riiiiight. 

So what happened when Digital Spy tried it out with the oh-so-hot-hot-hot faces of 1D? Nope, it didn't explode with sheer awe, surprisingly - but *did* name one member as decidedly more attractive than the rest. Say whaaaaa?

Finally some accuracy. Yup, Luigi Von Tom was correctly handed 'godlike' status by the app, and is therefore, according to science, the hottest member of 1D. 

Oh, and in case you were wondering....
