What tricky science question do YOU want answered?
After some great comments and views of my first 'tricky questions' hub, I was wondering if there was always a question that you wanted answered about science? I will collate ten of the best for a new hub I am writing - so far I have: "Why don't fish get electrocuted when lightning hits the water" and "Why does the moon sometimes look bigger than normal?"
What would you like to know? Bluesky thinking welcome!
What is gravity? We know that it is a force in which large masses in the universe and solar system are attracted to each other. But what is gravity actually in plain words?
Hmm I'm following you but I got a notification for this question and hence went out to check your hub. Will read it after asking my questions and leave a comment there
1 - Do white holes exist as predicted by scientists?
2 - Black holes do have strong gravity and light too can't escape - black holes do grow larger and larger in time absorbing all forms of energy. Stars are eaten up and so on, every form of energy does radiate light. Is it possible that blackholes too radiate light as its a form of energy but it absorbs its own light due to the intense gravit?
3 - Neutrons are neutral and protons are considered +ve so why do neutrons - neutrons and a neutron-proton attract each other with the same force? Whats the concept behind it? I'm sure that charges will be out of it as +ve and neutral won't attract. Is it just because their masses are almost same? If this is true then won't their forces be like gravitational forces and if this is true won't the force be small as they are tiny?
I got one. Tornadoes are rotating columns of air that seem to have form and structure, almost like a solid object. While it might be possible to explain them scientifically, is it possible to explain how they are formed in a simple and intuitive way?
Mine is fairly simple - how do scientists know a tremor after an earthquake is an aftershock and not another earthquake?
Why is Carbon the most important element in the known universe and why is it at the core of every Star?
Here's a question that's bugging me at the moment. I'd like to understand where abstract reasoning comes from and how it works. How is it that we're able to look at a map and relate the lines and shapes to streets and buildings, or a stick-figure drawing and understand that it's a person?
Or, in a more personal example, that we can look at a photo of an airplane, a hand-drawn picture of an airplane, a plastic toy airplane, and a real airplane and somehow know that these are all the same thing? I have a one-year-old who is able to do this now, and it baffles me.
I'd like to understand how the brain does this - is it a logic function? A language function? A visual function? All three? My knowledge of this area of squishy science is a bit limited, and I'm not sure where to even start researching.

What Science questions do you want answered?What questions linked to science have you always wondered about, but never had the answers to? Which aspects of science do you think are typically misunderstood by the general public?

I mean we all know all they have to do is look the answers up up right , instead of asking over and over and over , The reason I'm asking is because I just read a hub calling new hubbers questions stupid, I personally don't think any question in this world is stupid , if one never asked...

What science question would you most like answered?
by jomine 8 years ago
I know you are going to answer 'gravity', but it is just the name of the phenomenon. The question is how(the mechanism) objects fall to the ground? How earth attract objects, that is far away?

What do you feel we seek, by asking questions here on HP? Do you sometimes question our motives?

If you could ask God only one question and somehow be answered, what it would be?So, let's say that somehow you can ask God (name Him as you wish) only one question! And God will give you a straight answer. What would be this issue?
