Researchers simulate simple logic for nanofluidic computing
Invigorating the idea of computers based on fluids instead of silicon, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have shown how computational logic operations could be performed in a liquid medium by simulating the trapping of ions (charged atoms) in graphene (a sheet of carbon atoms) floating in saline solution. The scheme might also be used in applications such as water filtration, energy storage or sensor technology. phys.org/news/2018-06-simul...

Quantum gas reveals first signs of path-bending monopole
Magnets, whether in the form of a bar, horseshoe or electromagnet, always have two poles. If you break a magnet in half, you'll end up with two new magnets, each with its own magnetic north and south. phys.org/news/2018-06-quant...
Scientists create embryos, hope to save near-extinct rhino
Months after the death of Sudan, the world's last male northern white rhino, scientists said Wednesday they have grown embryos containing DNA of his kind, hoping to save the subspecies from extinction. phys.org/news/2018-07-scien...
Wikipedia down in several countries in EU law protest
Wikipedia went down in at least three countries Wednesday in a protest at an upcoming European Parliament vote on a highly disputed law that could make online platforms legally liable for copyrighted material put on the web by users. phys.org/news/2018-07-wikip...
