What is the top physics story of 2010?
The trapping of antihydrogen.
Spectroscopy of the atmosphere of an extrasolar planet.
Cooling a micron-scale resonator to its quantum ground state.
A visible-light "invisibility cloak."
A phonon "laser."
Bose-Einstein Condensation of photons.
Demonstration of relativistic time shifts for speeds below 10 m/s and elevation changes of ~30 cm.
Holograms with photorefractive materials.
A measurement showing the proton charge radius is smaller than previously believed.
Record-high-energy collisions in the LHC.
Something involving graphene, because it won the Nobel.
Some other story from the world of astronomy, that I will explain in a comment.
You are a Bad Person for even suggesting that physics discoveries can be ranked.
You are a Bad Person for leaving out my pet subfield, which I will expound upon at length in a comment.
You are a Bad Person because all of these stories involve experiments, and theorists have feelings too, you know.
As a being of pure intellect, I am unimpressed by all of these "discoveries." I love me some radio-button polls, though.
