Modern physics has many achievements to be proud of, but mysteries still abound, and sometimes we feel more in the dark than we did 100 years ago. Here are some of the major issues that modern physics is still trying to understand.

I found this a refreshing acknowledgement in the report here "The last force standing independently is gravity. And still today, decades later, we have no quantum description of gravity. And we've worked really hard on the problem, but every time we try to apply quantum techniques to Einstein's force, the math goes haywire and we can't make predictions."

Everything I read on quantum gravity, Alan Guth, Kip S. Thorne, etc., quantum gravity is the foundation for inflation in the Big Bang model, string theory, and the multiverse. Showing that quantum gravity operates in the solar system and across the universe - is a work in progress. Kepler's planetary laws, Newton's laws of motion, gravity, were shown to be valid at Jupiter with the Galilean moons and eclipses observed and measured, as well as in binary star systems, and now exoplanet studies. Demonstrating quantum gravity rules the universe as a law and ruled *in the beginning* seems very tentative.

There is another view on why quantum gravity in cosmology is so important today. Will Science Someday Rule Out the Possibility of God?

""Over the past few centuries, science can be said to have gradually chipped away at the traditional grounds for believing in God. Much of what once seemed mysterious — the existence of humanity, the life-bearing perfection of Earth, the workings of the universe — can now be explained by biology, astronomy, physics and other domains of science. Although cosmic mysteries remain, Sean Carroll, a theoretical cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology, says there's good reason to think science will ultimately arrive at a complete understanding of the universe that leaves no grounds for God whatsoever. Carroll argues that God's sphere of influence has shrunk drastically in modern times, as physics and cosmology have expanded in their ability to explain the origin and evolution of the universe...Cosmologists can model what happened from 10^-43 seconds after the Big Bang until now, but the split-second before that remains murky. Some theologians have tried to equate the moment of the Big Bang with the description of the creation of the world found in the Bible and other religious texts; they argue that something — i.e., God — must have initiated the explosive event. However, in Carroll's opinion, progress in cosmology will eventually eliminate any perceived need for a Big Bang trigger-puller. As he explained in a recent article in the "Blackwell Companion to Science and Christianity" (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012), a foremost goal of modern physics is to formulate a working theory that describes the entire universe, from subatomic to astronomical scales, within a single framework. Such a theory, called "quantum gravity," will necessarily account for what happened at the moment of the Big Bang."

Understanding how gravity works is the main problem in modern academia. The truth is that no one in acadamia appears to be searching for solutions outside old ideas .... perhaps job security rules over innovation. I suggest a continuation if you want to be in the same place 20 years from now..... The three laws of atomic gravity is the path forward to understanding gravities role in modern physic . If you have never heard of the laws .... perhaps you are part of the problem.
