    As someone who is really into science, (especially forensics) it's difficult to just pick one!

    Some of my favourites do include things like the internet, DNA, the various vaccines we have, etc.

    So, what's yours?

    I'd say the discovery of penicillin. Without that, many of us would not be here today and that discovery lead onto further antibiotic discoveries. I'm also very grateful for vaccines that have been produced, especially ones that have completely eradicated certain diseases.

    I'd agree, vaccines and penicillin are some of my favorite discoveries

    As someone who is currently taking antibiotics, I'm not too sure how I forgot them!

    Being on penicillin for pneumonia at the moment, I'm feeling pretty grateful for that right now! Other than that, I think the discovery of how radiation can be used in medicine is extraordinary
