 Goethean Science
Goethean science is an approach to knowing the world, that serves as an intuitive or "right brain" (so to speak) complement to the traditional rationalistic "left brain" science.
Goethean science is therefore also a spiritual path, an integration of science and art, a science of quality and of wholeness, the development of a science of compassion.
Goethe's science seeks this gesture of organisms, and it is this quality which shows us the 'inner necessity' of the growing plant.

 Science -- Lander and Weinberg 287 (5459): 1777
As a consequence of this revolution, biology in the 21st century is rapidly becoming an information science.
The science of genetics, however, was disconnected from this forward rush of biochemical progress.
Hugo de Vries in the Netherlands, Erich Tschermak von Seysenegg in Austria, and Karl Correns in Germany simultaneously rediscover and verify Mendel's principles of heredity.

After several weeks, clumps of the new stem cells grew into different tissue types, showing that they can create many of the body's different cells, the researchers assert.
One of the team's most important results, notes Rudolph Jaenisch of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Mass., is the improved efficiency over last year's cloning experiment.
Although the new stem cells may eventually be used to treat the patients from whom they were cloned, study coauthor Gerald Schatten of the University of Pittsburg School of Medicine says that a more immediate use will be for studying genetic diseases.

 oersted
Contemporary historians of science do not all agree that the discovery of electromagnetism by Hans Christian Oersted in 1820 was directly tied to Friedrich Schelling's system of romantic nature philosophy, nor is it clear how one could establish this assertion beyond doubt.
It is perhaps the only case known in the history of science when a major scientific discovery was mate in front of a classroom of students.
The auditors were mostly men already considerably advanced in science; so these lectures and the preparatory reflections led me on to deeper investigations than those which are admissible in ordinary lectures.

 CERN Courier - Science gets closer to the i - IOP Publishing - article
It sounds like science fiction, but a new idea could lead to a form of shielding that would make an object effectively invisible.
Normal materials with the required properties are unlikely to be found, so complexes of metal rings and wires would be used to generate the appropriate exotic behaviour.
Of course even if this idea works for microwaves, it may not be possible to engineer the right sort of material for the optical region of the spectrum, or for a range of frequencies wide enough to make something that Harry Potter could use.

Science Museum > The Energy Hall > The Story of Steam > James Watt's perfect engine >
When it was built in 1777, there wasn't an obvious way to provide power to manufacturing and some people were doubtful about steam power.
This tracing from a sketch of Old Bess, made before the engine's dismantling at the Soho Manufactory in 1848, provides valuable information about its later layout.

The hydrogen lamp was invented by Alessando Volta (1745-1827) in 1777.
In 1931 he began to construct a huge double generator consisting of two 23-foot high insulating columns each containing two belts and supporting an aluminum sphere, 6 feet in diameter.
The apparatus was used for high energy particle research until the 1950s when it was donated to the Boston Museum of Science, where it is regularly demonstrated at the Thompson Theatre of Electricity.

12 January 2006, 6:00 pm U.S. Science has unconditionally retracted two published papers, W.-S. Hwang et al., Science 303, 1669 (2004) and W.-S. Hwang et al., Science 308, 1777 (2005),   on the basis of the final report from the Investigation Committee of Seoul National University (SNU).
  Science has posted the editorial retraction to the Science Express website (http://www.scienceexpress.org).
An excerpt may be found below: “Because the final report of the SNU investigation indicated that a significant amount of the data presented in both papers is fabricated, the editors of Science feel that an immediate and unconditional retraction of both papers is needed.
