Pretty much no one noticed
but astrophysicists reported they found proof for frame dragging. Frame dragging says that a spinning body "drags" the space around it, warping it. Gravity Probe B will shed more detailed insight into this question in a couple years.
Currently physics takes a long time to answer new questions, because new basic knowledge is pretty hard to come by given how much we already know and how much science has been done in the last couple hundred years. All the easy questions and a lot of the hard ones have already been answered. The next big events on my calendar are the refraction measurements that may either rule out or endorse quantum loop gravity or string/M theory (few years out), the Large Hadron Collider experiments that may yield a Higgs particle (hopefully a few years, but who knows), and serious talk about building a space elevator (maybe this year, the space elevator guys are starting to be taken seriously and a Nasa chief engineer is on board).
