of course "mystery" in science generally means what we don't yet know but likely could with more work/understanding, whereas a "Mystery" in most religious contexts has do with questions of how should we live our daily lives in relation to a demanding yet largely unknowable/mysterious Being, so not really the same subject. Plus in my experience scientists don't tend to do better than other people when it comes to not-knowing in the interactions that make up their daily lives. And there is a whole history of "negative" theology and mysticism that makes welcoming/seeking Mystery central to living a faithful life.
