The visible image on July 23 at 1140 UTC (7:40 a.m.) EDT) from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 satellite showed Tropical Storm Bonnie's cloud-covered center south of Miami, Fla. GOES satellites are operated by NOAA. The NASA GOES Project, located in Greenbelt, Md. creates imagery and animations of GOES imagery.
Tropical storm watch is in effect for the east coast of Florida north of Deerfield Beach to Jupiter Inlet including Lake Okeechobee, and the Northern Gulf Coast from Destin, Florida to Morgan City, Louisiana. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the Northwestern Bahamas, the Florida east coast from Deerfield Beach southward, including all of the Florida Keys, Florida Bay and along the Florida west coast northward to Englewood.
At 5 a.m. EDT, Bonnie's center was located near latitude 24.1 north and longitude 78.6 west, which is about 155 miles southeast of Miami, Fla. and about 165 miles east-southeast of Marathon, Florida. Maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph. Bonnie is moving toward the west- northwest near 18 mph and the National Hurricane Center expects it to continue moving in this direction over the next day or two. Bonnie is expected to pass near the Florida Keys and southern Florida then move over the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight. Tropical storm watches issued for southern Mississippi and southeast Louisiana as Bonnie is forecast to move that way this weekend.
Miami is under a tropical storm warning today. This morning at 8:05 a.m. EDT, a large area of moderate to heavy rainfall was moving over Miami north to West Palm Beach. A flood watch is in effect through the afternoon of July 23 for all of South Florida.

The National Hurricane Center noted that tropical storm conditions will continue of parts of the northwestern Bahamas this morning and then spread over southern Florida, including the Keys. Bonnie is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over south Florida with possible isolated maximum amounts of 5 inches. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible over the northwestern Bahamas. Isolated tornadoes are possible over extreme southern Florida later today.

GOES-13 will continue to provide coverage in visible images during the daytime and infrared images over night-time hours and will watch Bonnie as she moves into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
