Unknowns behind the closed doors

Copernicus showed a great unknown to us. That earth is not the center of the universe. A big step for the human. He opened the door and showed us something unknown. Fortunately, world literature is full of stories to understand unknowns. Alice in Wonderland was perhaps my main motivation as a child. When I grew up, I saw many unknown doors ahead. The most important for me was the secret of life in the universe. Can we imagine the effects of the discovery of extraterrestrial life in our life?
