(Bi)Weekly Science Roundup

Until my work life calms down a bit, I think bi-weekly posts are going to have to suffice. Here’s what I found interesting over the last few weeks:

Scientists create chips that automatically and gracefully handle component level failures.

Scientist load bee venom into specially designed nano-particles and assassinate HIV. This could lead to an unequivocal cure for the disease.

Scientists figure out a new mechanism for disabling the expression of specific genes, which could lead to more effective cancer treatments.

Quantum refrigerator can effectively cool a mass of one million times its own weight
