21st century science

At the end of the 19th century, physicists thought they had reached the final frontier of their science. They felt everything was explained, with just a few loose ends to tie up. This was not true. By 1920, the fields of quantum mechanics and relativity were wide open.

Are we in a similar place here in the 21st century? I suspect knowledge of consciousness is the new frontier.
