Just as the question states. What scientific breakthrough would you like to happen in your lifetime?

Immortality.
Chances of it happening aren't impossible

Give me Deus ex Machina levels of cybernetics. I want to be able to punch through rebar reinforced concrete walls already. That and literally beat some sense into each and every idiot out there.

A complete understanding of how the Universe came to be.

None of that religious doctrine, but real facts. I can find out hundreds of ways the universe was made if I just pick up various religious texts...

One that I hope can happen is Artificial Gravity. I'm not sure the viability of creating Artificial Gravity but I think it would be a great tool for both studies/experimentation and exploration.

1. highly efficient yet affordable and reliable solar panels - being able to drive cars using solar energy alone, never having to worry about filling the tank during day travel.

2. fully foldable electronic displays in consumer electronics. the technology is already there, but have yet to be introduced.
the most we have so far is slightly curved rigid displays. why? because it seems cool!

3. find a way to actually stop spam calls (and i don't mean a lol do not call registry) using advanced algorithms. the (land) telephone technology we have so far is prehistoric.

What are the cons to having a car that runs on solar energy?

It's not gonna run at night if it hasn't stored extra energy.

I was afraid of that. It seems like a good idea until it reaches night time. What about if it rains or snows?

a car running solely on solar energy could have trouble running in the evening / night
to solve this, we could have a solar/electric hybrid
there's also the issue of maintenance, as electronic components of the solar panel might fail over time - but that's not that different from having to check and change oil. in the ideal case, the solar panels would be "reliable", which means you seldom need to worry about maintenance.
