Perpetual Motion and the Uncertainty Principle
In quantum mechanics, some strange stuff happens. For the most part, in completely defies everything we "know" about the world. In my opinion, quantum theory is a crowning proof that science works because it doesn't make sense... only it does. Scientists have conducted thousands of tests and quantum theory has stood strong. Recently, scientists have discovered that quantum mechanics and thermodynamics seem to be intimately linked. This would connect the world of the freaking weird with the world of the well understood (which, is always good in science).
