Science of the Week, 5/25/12

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! Today is the start of WisCon. I plan to have an extra post up on Tuesday discussing the convention. For now, here are some of the most interesting news stories I read on ScienceBlog this week:

A robot learns to tidy up after you (I need a bunch of these to pick up after my son! I wonder how good they would be at organizing his toys.)

Rewritable storage via DNA

Newfound exoplanet may turn to dust

Rare neurons discovered in monkey brains

Not much this week, but I'm sure people have other things besides science on the mind going into the long weekend. I hope you enjoy yours. If you have time on Monday, be sure to stop by for another Blog Ring of Power interview.

The possibilities in engineering living memory are so cool. You're going to Wiscon? I'm jealous. I want to get there some year soon!

I'm glad you're enjoying it, Michael!

Catherine, I'm at WisCon now! It's my favorite convention; I hope you can make it next year!
