Science Top 10 of 2006

I took a quick look for top stories of 2006 and of course nature news has the best and most comprehensive top 10 lists of 2006 science. Unfortunately a ridiculously expensive subscription to Nature is required.
Top 10 readers choice
Top 10 editors choice
Top 10 news features
Top 10 most commented on
Science magazine also has a rundown of top 2006 science and named the solving of the proof of the Poincare Conjecture as #1. The runners up are also briefly described. Obviously lots of overlap with the nature top 10s.
For those without a university subscription to Nature or Science, Discover magazine has a readers choice of top10 science news stories of 2006.
Also the Science Friday podcast (direct XML link) has a typically mediocre review of 2006 science.

Check out this great New Yorker article which gives Perelman's account of why he declined the Fields medal offered to him for proving the Poincare Conjecture, and talks about the international contreversy surrounding the whole deal.
