    Title: 13 Things that Don't Make Sense: The Most Intriguing Scientific Mysteries of Our Time
    Author: BROOKS MICHAEL

    Science starts to get interesting when things don_t make sense.Even today there are experimental results that the most brilliant scientists can neither explain nor dismiss. In the past, similar anomalies have revolutionised our world: in the sixteenth century, a set of celestial irregularities led Copernicus to realise that the Earth goes around the sun and not the reverse. In 13 Things That Don_t Make Sense Michael Brooks meets thirteen modern-day anomalies that may become tomorrow_s breakthroughs.Is ninety six percent of the universe missing? If no study has ever been able to definitively show that the placebo effect works, why has it become a pillar of medical science? Was the 1977 signal from outer space a transmission from an alien civilization? Spanning fields from chemistry to cosmology, psychology to physics, Michael Brooks thrillingly captures the excitement and controversy of the scientific unknown.
