Poll: Top Physics Story of 2010?

It's the last week of the (calendar) year, which means it's a good time to recap the previous twelve months worth of scientific news. Typically, publications like Physics World will publish a list of top ten physics stories of 2010, but we're all Web 2.0 these days, so it seems more appropriate to put this to a poll:

I've used the Physics World list as a starting point, because you have to start somewhere. I added a few options to cover the possibility that they left something out, and, of course, you know where the comments are.

This poll is made using classical software, and thus you must choose a single answer, not a quantum superposition of multiple answers. Not even if one of them is the "macroscopic" object cooled to its ground state.

Having posted not one but two snarky political entries in recent days, I feel like I owe the Internet a couple of ResearchBlogging posts to make up for it. It's the last week of classes here, though, which means I have a lot of frantic work to do. Thus, a frivolous poll inspired by the cinnamon…
A continuation of the lecture transcription/ working out of idea for Boskone that I started in the previous post. There's a greater chance that I say something stupid about quantum measurement in this part, but you'll have to look below the fold to find out... At the end of the previous post, I…

The exoplanet stuff is pretty cool! I think as the years go by the discovery of exoplanets will be one of the biggest PR bumps for science.
