Interesting analyses of monumental scientific research

Bora's hosting the first-ever edition of a new history of science carnival, "The Giant's Shoulders," which promises to focus attention on great research from years past, once a month.

All participants review a journal article or other report of science from their field of expertise. The catch is that the science being reviewed must be at least ten years old. This edition recaps all the entries from Skulls in the Stars' original challenge, so if you missed that, now's your chance to catch up, in addition to reading all the new entries for this edition.
