Top 100 Science Stories of 2008 (part 1)

Discover Magazine, a perennial EIGN favorite, has just put out their top science stories of 2008. Being a fan of both science creationism and year end lists, I spent the better part of an afternoon flipping through the 100 stories and was absolutely amazed at how many of those top 100 stories we've covered at EIGN in our first 9 months on the beat.

Here's part one of a two part series about the stories we covered that Discover considers the most important science stories of the year:

Number 55: Polar Bears (Finally) Make the Endangered Species List

Number 46: FDA Approves Food From Cloned Animals

Number 7: Invisibility Becomes More than Just a Fantasy

Number 5: Nations Stake Their Claims to a Melting Arctic.

Stay tuned for part 2, including the number 1 science story of the year. Even the casual EIGN reader should know what that is.
