Physics story tops EurekAlert!'s 2010 list of most-visited releases
Date:3/23/2011

The most-visited story on EurekAlert! in 2010 was the discovery of a "golden ratio" in the nanoscale symmetry of solid matter. The finding put forth the new suggestion that matter on the quantum level may possess its own unique, orderly patterns as opposed to chaos.

Stories on the health sciences and medicine also drew significant attention from EurekAlert! users in 2010. The most popular topics varied from neurological diseases including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, to reproductive health, and how proteins and genes influence diabetes and cancer.

Website traffic statistics recorded between January and December 2010 identified the 10 most heavily trafficked news releases posted on EurekAlert! during the year. The most visited press release received nearly 130,000 views.

Finding the golden mean

The top story concerned a breakthrough reported in Science. Researchers from Germany and the United Kingdom discovered that the "golden mean," previously seen only in mathematics and the arts, exists in solid matter on the nanoscale. The finding is a culmination of over a decade's worth of collaborative work.

One of the paper's authors, Alan Tennant of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fr Materialien und Energie in Berlin, Germany, remarked that "Such discoveries are leading physicists to speculate that the quantum, atomic scale world may have its own underlying order."

Innovative medical treatments

Chinese researchers' significant contributions to the advancement of stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine were the focus of the second most-visited press release on EurekAlert! in 2010.

According to Canada's McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health, China has made it a priority to become a world leader in regenerative medicine. The study, published in the journal Regenerative Medicine, highlights the increasing number of scientific contributions in stem cell research.
