The New Scientist has an article on ‘Thirteen things that don’t make sense‘, with a nice description of some big problems that have been baffling scientists. There are many entries there on astrophysics and cosmology, which never made much sense to my (admittedly puny) mind. But the ones on the placebo effect (at No.1) and cold fusion (at No. 13) are really interesting.
The real stunner came at No. 4: Belfast homeopathy results. It certainly made me go ‘it doesn’t make sense’!
