It seems odd to me that we have no general solution to quintic equations yet.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it possible that it exist any general solutions to equations of the fifth degree (and higher) that just haven't been discovered yet?

Or are we certain that it doesn't exist?
