Science’s Biggest Breakthroughs in 2014

December 21st, 2014

With 2014 ending, many channels are sharing their lists of top events in 2014. I’ve already reposted a couple of ‘top inventions’ lists, but here’s one about monumental scientific advances, of which there were many this year. (Which is why, as one commenter astutely noted, Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew didn’t make the list). i09’s Biggest Scientific Breakthroughs Of 2014 shares 20 discoveries and innovations from various fields, including biology (first birth from a donated womb,) astronomy (water discovered on Saturn’s moon) and archaeology (pre-modern human artwork discovered).
