Science has improved greatly since the ancient period; it has continuously developed and adapted to the changing times. Modern technologies also aid us in our daily lives – from mundane activities like going to work to scientific endeavors such as forensics and clinical research. However, the world is still chock-full of mysteries that to date, cannot be explained by modern science. Here is a list of ten discoveries that even advanced science cannot concretely explain.
The moa were flightless birds who roamed New Zealand during the Miocene to Holocene period. The birds were thought to be driven to extinction by hunting of the Maori people and habitat destruction.

#2. Sacsayhuaman Complex, Peru
Sacsayhuaman (also called Saqsaywaman) is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in Peru. Spanish conquerors believed that the structures were works of the devil while some people today believe these were created by extraterrestrials. What is surprising about the structure is that the stones fit each other perfectly in such a way that not even a blade of grass can be inserted in between the stones. The zigzagging structure of the stones made scientists assume that these stone walls represent the teeth of a puma, the animal which represented the Inca dynasty. How the massive structure was constructed has left scientists baffled even today.
#3. Gate of the Sun, Bolivia
The Gate of the Sun is located near La Paz, Bolivia, and is believed to be constructed by the ancient Tiwanaku. It is a stone archway with 48 squares containing carvings of winged effigies with human or condor heads. All 48 effigies face the central figure of a man whose head is surrounded by rays. These carvings are believed to have served an astronomical purpose, but its definite use remains to be confirmed.
#4. Longyou Caves, China

Each grotto iss supported by evenly distributed stone pillars and contained rooms, gutters, pools, and bridges. Scientists estimate that the construction period would have lasted six years. However, the origin, purpose, and preservation method of this man-made structure remain a mystery.
