The Moderate Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument onboard NASA's Terra satellite as captured an infrared image of the newborn storm on June 26 at 0228 UTC. The image revealed higher thunderstorms around the center of Tropical Depression Doksuri that were casting shadows on the lower, less potent storms surrounding them.

The bands of thunderstorms wrapping into the center of the circulation appear fragmented on infrared imagery. Satellite imagery also shows that the southwestern quadrant has a large area of strong convection (rising air that forms thunderstorms that make up the tropical cyclone) and thunderstorms.
At 1500 UTC (11 a.m .EDT) it was located 545 nautical miles (627 miles/1,009 km) east of Manila, Philippines, near 14.6 North and 130.3 West. It was moving to the west at 10 knots (11.5/18.5 kph)and had maximum sustained winds near 30 knots (34.5 mph/55.5 kph). It is expected to intensify as it is in an area of warm sea surface temperatures, and wind shear is expected to relax. Doksuri is forecast to pass north of Lumon Island, then skirt the coast of China.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
