Ten key scientific breakthroughs of 2004
Science magazine has compiled a list of the ten key scientific breakthroughs of 2004. The discovery of water on Mars has topped the list. It's surprising that the discovery of a new human species in Indonesia, which is second on the list, wasn't big news at the time. You can read the BBC News report here.
But , I think Science magazine missed out on one more breakthrough of the year. Coca - cola's brand new, highly sophisticated, NASA spacecraft technology based water purification process.
