Several warnings have been issued by PAGASA for areas of the Philippines. Signal No. 2 is in effect for area in Luzon. Signal 2 means winds of 37.2 to 62 mph/60 to 100 kph are likely in at least 24 hours. Areas under Signal 2 include: Cagayan, the Calayan group of islands, the Babuyan group of islands, Isabela, Kalinga, Apayao, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Abra and Mt. Province.

There is also a signal 1 in effect for parts of Luzon. Signal 1 means winds of 18.6 to 37.2 mph/30 to 60 kph are likely in at least 36 hours. Signal 1 is in effect for the following areas: La Union, Pangasinan, Benguet, Ifugao, Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, Quirino, Aurora and the Batanes group of islands.On Oct. 30 at 02:10 UTC, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Krosa east of the Philippines, and showed bands of thunderstorms were wrapping into the center from the north and south of the center. Krosa had not yet developed an eye, but the storm was intensifying.
On Oct. 30 at 1500 UTC/11 a.m. EDT, Krosa had maximum sustained winds near 60 knots/69 mph/111.1 kph. Its center was located near 17.3 north latitude and 126.3 east longitude, about 374 nautical miles east-northeast of Manila, Philippines. It was moving to the west at 14 knots/16.1 mph/25.9 kph. The warm sea surface temperatures of the Philippine Sea are expected to enable Krosa to reach typhoon status before it makes landfall.
Krosa is forecast to make a brief landfall over extreme northern Luzon on Oct. 31 before moving west into the South China Sea. Once there, it is expected to brush Hainan Island, China and make a final landfall in Vietnam sometime on Nov. 4, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center forecast.

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.
Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
