Well we're in 2009 now, which means it's time for all the "this and that of 2008" lists to come out showing us some of the good, bad, hilarious and absolutely saddening events that happened last year making us realize how much can happen in just a year. I ran into such a list on Wired today that I decided was too good not to post here. It's called Top 10 Scientific Breakthroughs of 2008. Usually whenever I post a list I'll give a couple examples from the list of things that stood out to me, but in this case you'll have to go through the entire thing, because I didn't see any that stood out more then the others! Amazing what science can do these days.
