The most astounding scientific and technological discoveries of 2014

As we wave goodbye to 2014, let’s take this opportunity to marvel at some of the most astounding scientific and technological discoveries of 2014. As the infographics highlight, a large proportion of these stories fall into a few critical Network Society pillars: Energy, Manufacturing, and Health. Not only that, but these breakthroughs are increasingly coming from small research teams and individuals distributed worldwide as opposed to from within the confines of corporate giants.
