If you could make one scientific discovery that would shake science and make your name a household name, what would it be?
Making water out of dark energy... or just space.
That would really get attention and change the scientific thinking.
Time travel. Or maybe faster than light space travel. Both would be ground breaking.
In time, I would go into the future, maybe 100 years to see if humanity has made great strides in progress or destroyed itself (hopefully the former).
In space . . . where no man has gone before.
Make changes to the human brain to counter the human condition.
Hi Earnest how are you??
I would want to discover a new planet and name it Colebabie.
Capture and store energy from thunderbolt for our use. On average, a lighting bolt carries one million kilowatts of electrical energy. Looking at the number of lightning that takes place everyday around the world, it will solve the complete power requirement of the whole world for ever.
Other option could be to tap the energy generated by sea tides.
Both are huge and free source of energy. Sadly current technology cannot capture them
I like your thoughts, both have occurred to me..
I would like to add one more to this. I would like to develop a technology that will solve the fuel problem all together. Would like to create a world free of fossil fuels. Not only it will end the dependencies of the world on some on few countries for the energy requirement but will also solve the environment problem that arises due the burning of such fuels.
A forcefield that would absorb attacks of whatever and get only stronger for protection and call it the GinShield lol
Make a car that runs on water.
Invent a material whose properties can be controlled with a click of button.
Produce the grand Unified theory, combining quantum mechanics and general relativity, the person who does this will be as famous if not more than Einstein, Newton or Hawkins...They will be a legend!
He tried very hard, my point was though he is a household name and the person who produces a GUT will be too that was all
I would invent politicians who care about people and never lie. from that on all our problems would be sorted:)
Not sure it will in my generation we need another genius who can view the world in a new and unique way, until then i think we won't be able to connect the pieces, however it is an extremely important theory and one i will continue to follow :)and fingers crossed
I doubt it will ever happen as firstly we need to know all the different rules of this universe before trying to put them together.It would be like knowing god.
What we are learning is very exciting though!
I agree totally with both of you, I am sure we will unify quantum mechanics with general relativity which will be able to be varified experimentaly but it is a long way off! I think that with regards to a theory of everything i think you maybe right that we will never have that much knowledge...and for science sake i hope we never do once you know everything there is nothing else to learn and that would make me very sad !
Your comment about seeing god is an interesting one and one which i do often think about especislly when thinking about entanglement and that at the point of the singularity every particle was entangled hence all future particles are connected, you see interconnectivity throughout science and it is my belief that somehow all things are connected, but how is for many generations time to discover!
Earnest Nano technology is extremely exciting, in fact it is something I have been looking at a lot lately and i think is going to be a massive advancement, especiallly in the fields of quantum cryptography/computing as well as the medical and engineering fields. There will be applications for this new technology popping up all over the place in the next decade, I can't wait.

A basic rule of scientific inquiry is that you start from something you already know, something that can be proven, repeatedly, by other investigators in exactly similar circumstances. From something that is known for sure, one can make further hypotheses, and investigate. New questions...

The age of scientific discovery may be nearing its end as the limits of the human mind make further breakthroughs impossible, leading scientists have said.Russell Stannard, professor emeritus of physics at the Open University, argues that although existing scientific knowledge will continue to be...

What scientific discovery interests you most?

Is there any logical distinction between Faith & Blind Faith?? Is faith & blind faith the same thing by nature?? Is there any logic that can counter your faith?? An atheist, as we know is open to new dogmas, their science can be changed over time with the advent of new physical laws, but...

So I borrowed this idea from Misha to start a new thread.For me, I can give one particular instance where I think science and religion/spirituality are complementary, as crossing each other's boundaries. When I think of energy; where Kirlian photography has proven the existence of the energy...

According to Discovery.com, 1 in 4 Americans does not know that the Earth orbits the Sun. Does this say anything about America? Who are these people?
