id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> This story is part of The 2010s: A Decade in Review, a series on the memes, people, products, movies and so much more that have influenced the 2010s. From Neil Armstrong to Sally Ride, David Bowie to Stan Lee, the world has said farewell to some incredible people in the last 10 years (and a few nonhumans as well). Rather than try to list them all, we've chosen a select group, leaning heavily on those who made a name for themselves in science, space, technology and related fields. They can never be replaced. They can only be remembered.

While we stuck to 50 (humans), go ahead and use the comments to tell us about others who died in the 2010s and are sorely missed.
