As far as enterprise development is concerned, .NET is clearly picking up steam compared to Java. I think schools should teach C#.

The Standard Model is a coherent, thorough description of a very large number of physical phenomena: atomic theory, radioactivity, antimatter, electromagnetism, the nuclear forces, neutral currents, neutrinos, the bewildering range of particles produced by colliders - and much more.
