The blog io9 posted¬† a collection of the top science stories of 2014. Many of them are more along the lines of “how marble is quarried” and “how honey is harvested in Nepal”¬†(both very carefully) than hard science reporting, but they’re all cool to read about–especially if you need perspective or a reminder that the world is an awesome place. Because it is. And now we have another year to be in it and see more of it. Happy 2015!
