NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite passed above long-lasting Nadine for the last time before the tropical storm's dissipation on October 4, 2012 at 0249 UTC (10:49 p.m. EDT October 3, 2012).
TRMM data on Oct. 3 at 10:49 p.m. EDT showed that Nadine was producing light to moderate rainfall (blue/green) in an area well east of the center of circulation, while the center (red symbol) was rain-free. The approaching cold front that would help bring about Nadine's demise was generating rainfall west of Nadine's center.

TRMM measures rainfall from space and there was very little remaining in Nadine when it passed overhead. Rainfall data from TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) showed that Nadine was producing light to moderate rainfall in an area well east of the center of circulation, while the center was rain-free.
TRMM data showed that the approaching cold front that would help bring about Nadine's demise was generating rainfall west of Nadine's center.
According to NOAA Hurricane Ginger lasted 28 days in the Atlantic Ocean in 1971. In the Pacific Ocean Hurricane John, renamed Typhoon John when it crossed the International Dateline holds the record with a 31 day lifetime during August and September 1994.
Although not the longest-lived tropical cyclone, Nadine is in the top 50 longest-lasting tropical cyclones in either ocean basin.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
