Science Highs and Lows of 2014

Merry Christmas from The Element of Nature! I hope you had a great festive break and are looking forward to 2015 and everything the new year may bring us. With New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, I took a look at this article featured on the Nature News website which takes us on a whirlwind tour of both the highs and lows in science in the past 365 days.

It’s certainly been a rollercoaster of a year, with the most famous event of the year no doubt being the Rosetta mission landing a man-made vehicle on a comet for the first time. It hasn’t all been positive news, with the devastating story in July that the ‘Mississippi baby’ – thought to have been cured of HIV – had suffered a relapse.

It makes for an interesting read and concisely collects all of the biggest science stories of the year for our perusal.
