MORE UNSOLVED SCIENTIFIC MYSTERIES
Added on: 28th Apr 2015
WHEN CAN I TALK TO MY ROBOT?
Yea, we know Siri has jokes, but we mean actually talk. Like man to man.
Although AI is always improving, whether SkyNet will ever become
self-aware is still unclear.
WHAT’S AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN?
Seriously, 95% of the ocean is unexplored. In fact, it has been said
that is easier to get man to the moon than to the deepest parts
of the ocean.
WHAT’S AT THE BOTTOM OF A BLACK HOLE?
With general relativity and quantum mechanics in an apparent standoff,
science has yet to unify the two and come to some conclusive
understanding of how the weirdest parts of our universe actually work.
HOW LONG CAN WE LIVE?
Only in recent times has medicine started to view aging as a disease
rather than a fact of life. The question, however, isn’t really how to
live longer. It’s how to live longer well.
HOW DO WE SOLVE THE POPULATION PROBLEM?
By 2050 the population of Earth is estimate to be near 10 billion.
There is just no way the current infrastructure could support that.
IS TIME TRAVEL POSSIBLE?
Although time travel into the future is technically possible
(as your velocity increases your experience of passing time decreases),
time travel into the past is still beyond the horizon.
WHY DO WE YAWN?
Although humans (along with most vertebrate animals) yawn
scientists are still fairly clueless as to why.
WHY DOES THE PLACEBO EFFECT WORK?
Not only is the process by which it works disputable, the actual use
of placebos by physicians has also been a source of controversy.
