ENTANGLED WEB  Electromagnetic fields trap a cloud of rubidium atoms above a microchip (illustrated). Quantum linkages were observed between atoms in the left and right halves of the clump.

DRUMMING UP ENTANGLEMENT  Two teams of scientists demonstrated quantum linkages between two specially designed jiggling structures: drumheadlike objects (illustrated) and silicon beams (not shown).

MIRROR, MIRROR When black holes evaporate, where does the trapped information go? One potential explanation, that the black hole (illustrated) reflects the information instead of trapping it, has parallels with the behavior of materials that conduct electricity without resistance.
