Hi all,

I'm trying to put together a fairly comprehensive list of mysteries that science cannot currently explain with the standard theory.

So far I've got:
dark energy
dark matter
shrunken proton radius from muonic hydrogen

As you can see I've only got three items on the list and could use your help brainstorming! :smile:
Unexplained effects would be great too if you can remember any.

Cheers,

falcon

Because the world is an interesting place?

There are many open problems in all scientific areas. The length of the wikipedia article is a measure for the time invested by the authors, not a measure for the amount of open problems.
what is dark matter
It is quite pointless to ask one of the unsolved questions from the wikipedia article like that.

Yah, well billy, astronomers can only work with what they've got at the moment. Maybe they're wrong, maybe they're right, but at least they're trying. Instead of goofing off, why don't you pick up a book and read about it?

You're thinking of "Darkman"

My guess is that, once someone comes up with the key to unify GR with QM, most of these outstading enigmas will fall by the wayside.
