The past five decades have been characterised by spectacular scientific advances, spanning particle physics, molecular biology and neuroscience. Yet some of the most ‘basic’ building blocks of biology, the brain and the biosphere remain poorly understood. What are some of the outstanding known unknowns? What might be the key unknown unknowns in some of the most important areas of science? Finally, what might we need to do differently in future to address them?
