10 simple questions that science has no answers


We live in a unique civilization, knowledge of which allow you to control the weather, to get out into space, to grow children in test tubes and genetically modified crops on the field. If a person enters into a dispute or doubts, you can always go online and "Google" the necessary information. Yes, of course, the information space contains a lot of interesting data and facts, but even it is not able to give answers to all world questions. In addition, some of them are not willing to answer even the scientists themselves, despite a number of practical experiments and the most incredible theories.

The simplest questions of our everyday lives often do not have clear and distinct answers. In this case, even an adult can feel like a "photo gallery", trying to find them and explain. Here is the TOP 10 of the banal, but also very complex questions that the world's scientists are still not given clear answers, backed by evidence.

10. Why do cats purr

About the origin of "uncatalog apparatus" the cat was written many different articles and studies, but sensible the result never came out. Fluffy kitties continue to purr when they are comfortable, cozy and nice (which is confirmed by other factors). Yes, it is in the process of obtaining pleasure purring makes these purring sounds often. But scientists are shocking unexpected observation, because the cat may purr of hunger or fear. And then just disintegrate built over the years theory, one of which States that the alleged vibration of the sounds can help the cat to treat tendon and bones.

9. Why dream

Funding institutions for the study of dreams has produced results, because we know a lot about the functioning of the brain during rest, about showing them visual images in relation to human emotions. We even learned how to visualize the dreams of a sleeping person, connecting it to special computer programs. Here only the simple question remains unanswered: "why, or why people got the ability to see dreams?". Is it the result of the subconscious with the conscious? And can dreams really help you better assimilate the day received information to heal is deeply entrenched trauma? Some scientists still believe that dreams are nothing more than nerve impulses of the brain.

8. Why the giraffe has such a long neck

This animal is considered one of the oldest mammals in the course of our civilization, as it is not less a giant ancestors were found during the reign of the prehistoric (pre-glacial) animals. Still science reflects on the theme of what nature gave it is the animal's long neck. It would seem that the answer is simple – so easy to get the leaves, growing high in the trees. But because of his lack of foliage in the area giraffe may eat low-growing herbs. Scientists officially has not released the exact answer to this simple child's question.

7. Why most people are right — handed

Somehow we all got used to that 90% of people in the world is right-handed. Well, seduced and seduced, and "talent" is fixed thanks to the parents and the kindergartens. Interestingly, more than 1.5 centuries, scientists are struggling with the solution of this mystery, tying the work of the extremities to the functioning of the hemispheres of the brain, etc.

6. Why yawning is contagious

On this question the theory put forward regularly, here only many do not stand up to scrutiny. Someone hits into a discussion on the topic of the "collective unconscious", while others saw close emotional and social ties of people to each other, a kind of "zavodnoy empathy". Also, it was noticed that schizophrenics and autistic people do not tend to catch in the crowd began a wave of yawning, perhaps because of the notorious lack the social binding. While this is the only argument scientists. But there's a second question – and why yawning helps to establish any emotional ties?

5. Why do moths flock to the light

A small child may manage to cheat, explaining that the insects on the light bulb, just warmer. But adults still tormented by the question of why these fauna masochistic rush to the light source, which can kill them (the high temperature of the filament). Put forward the theory that light acts as an insect-a kind of locator, so they fly up to it at a certain angle. But opponents lead a healthy argument, smashing a theory to pieces – even before the invention of lamps was the fire that would have quickly destroyed all curious moths until the disappearance of the population.

4. How many years can live a man

This is the question that many would like to know the answer. Tell us how we could live, abandoning bad habits, work, neurosis and unhealthy food, but it is possible the ultimate resource of the organism to be determined. Many scientists still consider the wear and tear of cells and the aging disease that can be treated. Perhaps modern medicine has approached the answer to this serious question, because we already know about the existence of concepts of medication, can prolong life up to 120 years or more.

3. Where the birds know where to fly

A good question for any observant person who noticed how clearly, coherently organized, and birds gather in flocks to fly to warmer climes. Note that they immediately fly to spend the winter is on the way South and often in the same place. But birds don't have navigators and maps, and beacons on the way to install not able. As a whole group manage to get to the destination, and then a few months later to return back home? The only argument scientists – birds subject to the influence of the magnetic field of our planet.

2. As part of the body "understand" that they no longer need to grow

We have all seen how dashing lizard can regenerate its tail, having grown a new one. I wonder what the body is able to control the process of creating a new tail required structure, length and even color. And as such a "complex matter", as a person? Where his organs and body parts understand that no longer can regenerate or grow? Nails and hair will grow indefinitely, until one gets them right, which is not true of the teeth, limbs and bones. Scientists say that a signal the body gives the command to stop the development of protein mass, which prevents further growth. That's just what is that signal, who creates and delivers, through what channels?

1. What is on the bottom of the ocean

You think you know the answer to this question – not at all. We only know one thing – we are for the time a civilization managed to explore only 5% of the ocean floor, so I can stretch to judge the other 95%. We still have much to learn about the flora and fauna of the underwater space, the marvelous discoveries, the unique deposits of natural materials and so on. Exploration of the ocean floor will allow us to answer other important questions, for example concerning the search of ancient sunken civilizations, the ability to create underwater cities and transport lines, etc.

Our world is vast and unique, so you should never stay at a cognitive and creative activity. It is our pochemuchki inspire scientists and research on new exploits, inventions and clues that are so important for understanding the world.
