The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite or GOES-11 is stationary in its position in space, watching over the weather in the western U.S. GOES-11 captured an infrared image of Tropical Storm Georgette's rounded cloud cover stretching north into Baja California, Mexico at 13:15 UTC 9:15 a.m. EDT today, Sept. 21. GOES-11 imagery showed a smaller rounded area of clouds near Georgette's center, indicating higher clouds and stronger thunderstorms.

GOES-11 is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and images are created by NASA's GOES Project, located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
Because Georgette formed close to the coast there are already tropical storm warnings in effect for western Mexico. A tropical storm warning is in effect for the west coast of Baja California from Agua Blanca southward to Cabo San Lucas and the east coast of Baja California from Buenavista southward to Cabo San Lucas. A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area - in this case within the next 12 to 24 hours.
Tropical Storm-force winds will move into Baja California and the warning area later today. Georgette is going to be a big rainmaker. Total rainfall amounts between 4 to 6 inches are expected with isolated amounts to 10 inches.
At 8 a.m. EDT (5 a.m. PDT/local time) Tropical Storm Georgette had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph and is expected to weaken once it gets over land in Baja California later today. Georgette is located about 60 miles south-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico near latitude 22.1 North and longitude 109.5 West latitude. Minimum central pressure is near 1001 millibars.
Georgette is moving north-northwest near 9 mph and is expected to move over the southern Baja later today. Then, Georgette is forecast to move into the Gulf of California tonight or Wednesday and become a remnant low pressure area, quickly dissipating over mainland Mexico.

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
