Wired magazine came up with a list of 21 Things That Made the World a Better Place in 2021. Here are a few. Full list here.

• Scientists Revealed That Cheese Isn’t Bad for You — In February, speaking out against unfounded rumors that cheese is an evil, murderous entity, one scientist said: “There’s almost no evidence that cheese causes weight gain — and in fact, there’s evidence that it’s neutral at worst.”

• NASA Made Oxygen on Mars — NASA’s Perseverance Rover successfully converted some of Mars’s carbon-dioxide-rich atmosphere into oxygen in April. As a giant leap toward getting humans on Mars, NASA said the move “could pave the way for science fiction to become science fact.”

• A Thought-to-Be-Extinct Orchid Was Found on a London Roof — The biggest-ever game of hide and seek ended in June when a rare species of orchid was found growing on top of an investment bank in London, despite scientists believing the plant was extinct in the UK.
