Since the beginning of mankind's ponderings on the "nature of all things universal" - ALL science and all scientists have ultimately been proved to be wrong in either some major or minor way. The theory of the Universe as perceived by Ptolemy gave way to that of Copernicus, Copernicus to Kepler and Kepler to Hawking & Penrose.
A JOB IN PROGRESS so to speak !
ency. Then a method was discovered for separating the ideas–which was to try one to see if it worked, and if it didn't work, to eliminate it.
This method became organized, of course, into science.
And it developed very well, so that we are now in the scientific age.
It is such a scientific age, in fact that we have difficulty in understanding
how witch doctors could ever have existed, when nothing that they
proposed ever really worked–or very little of it did.

r, didn't give a definition — he described a process. He told attendees how he learned to do science, giving a detailed overview of formative experiences and underscoring their intellectual value. One of the patterns that emerged is that a mystery can be more valuable than the solution.
When introduced to the mathematical concept pi, Feynman couldn't comprehend it. "But this was a great thing," he said, "and the result [was] that I looked for pi everywhere." When trying to determine why birds pecked at their feathers, he guessed wrongly, but his father revealed the true answer, and Feynman learned something new. And so "the point of this is that the result of observation, even if I were unable to come to the ultimate conclusion, was a wonderful piece of gold, with marvelous results."
With that in mind, read this article with an invisible asterisk, partly because scientists may solve some or all of these mysteries one day — maybe today! But more importantly because failing to solve these mysteries is a journey of discovery in itself.
