Just what is stopping all those brilliant scientists, with all their expensive high tech computer aids and laboratories, from finding out something that seems so bliddy easy and bone simple?

If scientists can carry out other uber-advanced activities (such as genome mapping and sending probes into deep space)what is stopping them finding out the answer to something which (to me at least) looks comparatively easy? What is stopping them? Am I missing something obvious?
