15 MAJOR BREAKTHROUGHS SCIENTISTS ARE EYEING IN 2019
When you think of “scientific breakthroughs,” you probably think of the major, history-shifting ones. Newton’s laws of gravity! Einstein’s theory of relativity! Penicillin!
But for every textbook-worthy tentpole discovery, there are a dozen more amazing paradigm-shattering revelations—most of which fly totally under the radar. It’s gotten to the point where scientists could discover complex organics off Saturn and it wouldn’t even crack the front page. (That happened, by the way, just this year.)
So, to shed a little light on the unknown, we’ve rounded up all the major breakthroughs scientists are on the precipice of discovering. Keep watch. After all, great science doesn’t always come so obviously as an apple falling out of a tree.
