There have been many interesting discoveries in the field of science in the past decade. Here are a few examples:
The discovery of gravitational waves: In 2016, scientists announced the detection of gravitational waves, ripples in space-time predicted by Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity. The discovery was made using the LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) and confirmed a major prediction of Einstein's theory.
The discovery of exoplanets: In the past decade, scientists have discovered thousands of exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars outside of our solar system. Some of these exoplanets are located in the habitable zone of their star, meaning that they could potentially support life.
The discovery of the Higgs boson: In 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of the Higgs boson, a subatomic particle that is responsible for giving other particles mass. The discovery was a major confirmation of the Standard Model of particle physics and helped scientists to better understand the fundamental nature of the universe.
The discovery of CRISPR: CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is a tool that allows scientists to make precise edits to the genome of living organisms. It has the potential to revolutionize fields such as medicine, agriculture, and environmental conservation.
The discovery of new materials: In the past decade, scientists have discovered and synthesized a number of new materials with unique properties, such as superconductors that can conduct electricity with zero resistance and materials that can change their shape in response to stimuli.
