13 Science Mysteries

This New Scientist article is a great overview of the following 13 mysteries, or "things that don't make sense" in science (although I don't think they should have included homeopathy):
  • The placebo effect
  • The horizon problem (of the Universe)
  • Ultra-energetic cosmic rays
  • Belfast homeopathy results
  • Dark matter
  • Viking's methane
  • Tetraneutrons
  • The Pioneer anomaly
  • Dark energy
  • The Kuiper cliff
  • The Wow signal
  • Not-so-constant constants
  • Cold fusion
