When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over post-tropical storm Fabio on July 18 at 1023 UTC (6:23 a.m. EDT), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument captured temperatures of cloud tops and the sea surface. AIRS data showed very little strong convection and heavy rainfall occurring in the post-tropical storm and it was north of the center of circulation. Wind shear from the south is pushing the showers north of the center.

Sea surface temperatures are not warm enough to support a tropical cyclone because they are colder than 22 Celsius (71.6 Fahrenheit) in the area Fabio is moving through.
At 11 a.m. EDT on July 18, the National Hurricane Center issued their final advisory on post-tropical storm Fabio. At that time, Fabio was about 535 miles (855 km) south-southwest of San Diego, California, near latitude 25.7 north and longitude 120.8 west. Fabio's maximum sustained winds were near 30 mph (45 kmh) and weakening. It was still moving to the north at 9 mph (15 kmh) but is expected to turn to the north-northeast.
Doppler radar images from San Diego, Calif. showed some shower activity from Fabio approaching the area at 11 a.m. EDT on July 18.
The National Hurricane Center expects Fabio to dissipate in a couple of days. Meanwhile, large ocean swells, rip tides and dangerous surf conditions continue to affect the coasts of Baja California, Mexico and southern California.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
