Top 100 Science Stories of 2008 (part 2)

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

Number 45: Huge Population of Lowland Gorillas Found

Number 44: The Baffling Bee Die-Off Continues

Number 20: The “Doomsday Vault” Stores Seeds for a Global Agriculture Reboot

Number 2: The Large Hadron Collider. We've never talked about that thing before.

Their number one was something about the end of oil. Whatever the hell that is.

You can find part one of this story here.
