    I find them very interesting and I was wondering if anyone can name a bunch of famous physics paradoxes.

    Quantum entanglement for one.

    I'm not sure that there are any paradoxes, per se.

    Quantum entanglement is a potential aspect of quantum physics, but it is not a paradox.

    Re: Paradoxes

    Do you mean paradoxes as in "surprising but correct predictions of a theory" (like time dilation), or paradoxes as in "logical inconsistencies caused by incorrect calculations that look correct to a novice" (like the twin paradox)?
