    For what it’s worth…my thoughts on hard science bests/worsts/other for 2010 since you didn’t get to it in last Saturday. Best: Tie between initial full scale operations of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (that’s the physicist in me) without creating an end-of-the-world black hole and the creation/”capture” of anti-matter for 1/6 of a second (also at CERN). Both have the potential for fundamentally changing our understanding of how the world works…and of course the second is absolutely essential so that Scotty has his warp engines! Neatest and Cool: The development of “quantum paddles” at UCSB which showed quantum effects on a man-made object for the first time. Neatest but potentially scary (Kriana may not agree!): J. Craig Venter Institute’s using a completely synthesized genome to change a bacterium from one type to another…successfully Think “Splice”. Worst: While not original in 2010, the discovery of outright data falsification in the 1998 paper by Wakefield, et al that linked the MMR vaccine to autism. The damage done by the paper in significantly reducing vaccination rates was significant.

    Just my two cents worth!
