The Top Ten

1 keycha1n Born (2001)

2 General Relativity Theory first observationally tested by deflection of light under gravity (1919)

This single observation was what confirmed the wild postulate that acceleration and gravity were one and the same, and went on to describe the idea of multiverses existing beyond spacial horizons, led to development of geosynchronous satellites, and changed our model of the whole universe itself from a static and isotropic grid to a dynamical entity driven into expansion by the false vacuum, or possibly quintessence, and whose cyclic evolution would imply that it is part of a larger framework. It truly is incredible what a single astronomical sight can do to unravel the mysteries of science. - PositronWildhawk
