When NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite passed over Tropical Storm Anais on Oct. 16 at 0654 UTC (2:54 a.m. EDT), light to moderate rainfall was occurring southeast of the center and falling at a rate between .78 to 1.57 inches/20 to 40 mm per hour.

The displacement of rainfall from around the storm's center to the southeast indicates moderate to strong northwesterly wind shear. There no areas of heavy rainfall, indicating that the storm had weakened since the previous day.
Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted "the TRMM image depicts tightly-curved, shallow convective (thunderstorm) banding wrapping into a well-defined center with deep convective banding limited to the south quadrant."
Tropical Storm Anais had maximum sustained winds near 55 knots (63.2 mph/102 kph) on Oct. 16 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT). Anais was located near 14.4 South and 59.8 East, about 500 nautical miles (575 miles/926 km) north-northeast of La Reunion and moving toward the west-southwest at 9 knots (10.3 mph/16.6 kph).
Anais is forecast to continue tracking to the west-southwest toward Madagascar, while weakening.

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
