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

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...
