Editor's note: Perhaps no words can better denote scientific and academic accomplishments than “breakthrough.” While “break” illustrates the triumphant success of an experiment or research, “through” underscores those laborious behind-the-scenes quests – the murky and circuitous tunnel before a flicker of light.
