A Measure of our Ignorance

Science, second only to Nature in prestige, is celebrating its 125th aniversary by publishing a list of the Top 125 Things We Don't Know. Actually, that should be The Top 125 Things We Don't Know But Which We Might Figure Out Soon, but it's still a good list, including things like:

  • Are we alone in the Universe?
  • What is the Universe made of?
  • Why do humans have so few genes?
  • How, and where, did life here arise?
  • How hot will the greenhouse effect heat up Earth?
  • Is Quantum Mechanics all there is?

and much more. Read it.
