2008's Top Science Stories

Top ten Shopping lists and New Year's resolutions tend to dominate the holiday season, but what about those infamous top-ten lists? Luckily, well-established writers tend to do the legwork for us. Scientific American announces its list with a beautiful slide show highlighting the top 10 science stories of 2008. Not surprisingly, the ubiquitous presidential election and its consequences for science and the environment ranks first. Below it are the discovery of snow and glaciers on Mars, the mainstreaming of concerns over the plastic in your Nalgene, and humanitarian worries about the world's food supply.

China gets a couple of nods, both good, for cleaning up during the Olympics, and bad, for producing unsafe products. Check out the full list here.

Before you forget, weigh in! Which science headlines caught your eye this year?
