Unsolved Mysteries – Six Things Scientists Can’t Explain

In this video we take a look at six mysteries that scientists are unable to explain. These unanswered and surprising questions baffle scientists. Though the conclusions made by the author of this video are questionable and in one case silly (octopus are aliens), the unanswered questions it raises are interesting.

How Many Universes Exist?

In this Ted-Ed video, Chris Anderson discusses the idea of multi-universes. Our knowledge of physics keeps expanding but there is still a large amount of information we don’t fully understand. Physicist now believe our reality may be explained through a theory that there are more universes than just our own.

Is Every Electron In The Universe The Same Electron?

The One Electron Universe theory proposes that every electron in the universe is the same electron. Physicist John Wheeler suggested this idea to Richard Feynman in the 1940s. Feynman popularized the idea. The theory says if an electron was traveling backwards and forwards in time it would cross our timeline multiple times. So the same
