My Top 10 Science Stories of 2005

The Top 10 Science Stories of 2005

These were the best science stories of the year — according to my own personal taste. They are not necessarily the most important stories, just the ones I found most exciting and wanted to tell people about when I first heard of them. In some cases, they may even be old news (in one case, 100 years old). They are the stories I did not cover, though I wish I did. Come back at the end of the year for my 2006 picks.
