The final warning on the tropical storm was issued on November 24 from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center at 0900 UTC/4 a.m. EST. At that time, Tropical Cyclone Alessia was located near 13.8 south latitude and 129.0 east longitude, about 136 nautical miles/156.5 miles/252 km southwest of Darwin, Australia. Alessia was moving to the east at 15 knots/17.2 mph/27.7 kph and had maximum sustained winds near 35 knots/40 mph/62 kph at the time.
NASA's TRMM satellite passed over Tropical Storm Alessia on November 24 at 1325 UTC/8:25 a.m. EST and identified mostly light rain from the system (blue) with a small area (green) of moderate rainfall.

NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite passed over Tropical Storm Alessia on November 24 at 1325 UTC/8:25 a.m. EST and identified mostly light rain from the system with a small area of moderate rainfall, falling at a rate of 1.18 inch/30 mm per hour.
Cyclone Alessia crossed Australia's Northern Territory coast and made landfall south of Darwin during the night-time hours and quickly dissipated.
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology reported that the Upper Adelaide River, just north of where Alessia made landfall, received tropical-storm-force winds and received about 54 millimeters of rain. No damages were reported.Text credit: Rob Gutro

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
