Science magazine has released its list of the top 10 scientific developments in 2005, chosen for their
profound implications for society and the advancement of science. You can find the full list at:
Appended to that list is the following:
Science's Breakdown of the Year -- U.S. Particle Physics: With the cancellation of two major experiments and talk of an early closing for one of the three existing particle colliders, U.S. particle physics is Science's breakdown of 2005. As the U.S. program founders, particle physics research around the world could suffer. A bit of good particle physics news did emerge in 2005, however - researchers around the world remain committed to building the International Linear Collider, a multibillion-dollar global facility that may be the key to the future of particle physics.
Happy New Year,
