    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.

          lol, yeah but they would never even entertain it enough to go the next step and see if they actually can.

            lol do you think so?

      Make tracers without the use of LSD.

        By LSD did you mean Lysergic Acid Diethylamide?? Could you please elaborate your concept?

    Time travel. Or maybe faster than light space travel. Both would be ground breaking.

      Where would you travel to?

      sandra rinckposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      We already travel through time. lol.  But faster then light.  Yeah that would be something.  They are really, really close though.

    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 sad

      I like your thoughts, both have occurred to me.. smile

      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 big_smile for protection and call it the GinShield tongue lol lol

    Make a car that runs on water.

    OR

    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!

      packerpackposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      How will that make you a household name as proposed by OP

    2. mohitmisra profile image58
      mohitmisraposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      True Einstein was unable to come up with a unified theory himself though he tried.

    Create a cheap way to do cold fusion.

  12. dipless profile image80

    Is Einstein a household name?

  13. dipless profile image80
    diplessposted 9 years ago

    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 smile

      mohitmisraposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      You are correct, It will be a great achievement and will deserve the recognition. smileI wonder if it will happen.

    I would invent politicians who care about people and never lie. from that on all our problems would be sorted:)

  15. dipless profile image80
    diplessposted 9 years ago

    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 smile

      mohitmisraposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      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!

        1. mohitmisra profile image58
          mohitmisraposted 9 years agoin reply to this

          Extremely fascinating and quite mind blowing.Quantum physics is just so cool.

          1. earnestshub profile image87
            earnestshubposted 9 years agoin reply to this

            Yes I agree, I see great things ahead for nano tech as well.

  16. dipless profile image80
    diplessposted 9 years ago

    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 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.
