Summary

In 2011, Science's editors will be watching a smaller detector at the Large Hadron Collider called LHCb, which will study B mesons in great detail; new techniques that should lead to the discovery of many more genes contributing to adaptation; an ignited fusion burn at the National Ignition Facility; broadly neutralizing antibodies, which are capable of disabling a wide range of viral variants; the first plug-in hybrid electric cars whose batteries are charged from a wall socket go on the market; and the results of the first phase III trial of a malaria vaccine.
