From cold fusion to the female orgasm, there are some things science just has no answers for. Thankfully.
5. Cold Fusion
Cold fusion is a set of controversial effects reported in laboratory experiments. Basically, when atoms collide together, they can fuse together if there’s enough force. But according to the theories, this can only happen in extremely energized environment like the core of stars. The reason for this is still unknown.
4. The WOW! Signal
Jerry Ehman was absolutely stunned when he witnessed something nobody has been able to explain to this day. In the day of August 15th 1977, he received a radio signal from space that had expected hallmarks of potential non-terrestrial and non-solar system origin. It lasted for 72 seconds, the full duration Big Ear observed it, but has not been detected again.
3. Placebo Effect
Go ahead, take this; you’ll be better! All you have to do is believe you’ll be better. A placebo is a substance or procedure which a patient accepts as a medicine or therapy but which has no specific therapeutic activity for the condition; the results are believed to be caused by the power of suggestion. Nobody knows exactly what power we have that could be harvested to cure ourselves, but luckily scientists are trying to sort this out as we speak. It may take a while though – they’ve been doing this for decades, if not centuries.
2. Dark Matter
Dark matter is a form of hypothetical matter that doesn’t emit or reflect enough electromagnetic radiation to be observed directly, but whose presence can be inferred from gravitational effects on visible matter. Rewind; basically, our understanding of gravity doesn’t explain the distribution of visible objects in the universe. So in order to do this, modern scientists have “created” this form of matter.
1. Female Orgasms
It’s obvious for everybody what the purpose of male orgasms is – it plays a key reproductive role, important for the continuation of the human race. However, the scientific and evolutionary role of the female orgasm is still the subject of much debate. Also, if we’re at it, things aren’t certain about the G point either.
