Perhaps you've already voted for the scientific advancement that you consider to be the "One Giant Leap". But if not, get over there and vote, join the discussion. We're looking for which single advancement pushed science the farthest in one increment. Or, perhaps you're thinking, "Those ideas suggested are corn*, and I have a way better one!" If that's you, then we'd love to hear from you in the comments to the post. I think there are some very thought-provoking candidates for the One Giant Leap, but we might be missing something. Bring it. Vote!
The Fine Print
*If you're tired of all the old, worn out, traditional swear words, I'd like to suggest "corn" as an outstanding subsitution. Try it for a week. I think you'll be delighted. The term can be used across multiple cursing disciplines with a wide variety of applications.
