NOAA's GOES-East satellite image showed a large circulation associated with Tropical Depression 8 or TD8 after it was officially designated a depression by the National Hurricane Center. The image was created by NASA's GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured the birth of Tropical Depression Eight in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico at 2:31 p.m. EDT on Sept. 6.

The center of TD8 formed right along the eastern coast of Mexico near Tampico and was making landfall after it formed. At 2:30 p.m. EDT, the center of the depression was directly over Tampico. It had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph/55 kph and was moving to the west-southwest at 6 mph/9 kph.
Minimum central pressure is 1009 millibars. Despite making landfall quickly, there are no watches and warnings in effect, although it is expected to drop rainfall between 3 and 5 inches in the Mexican states of Veracruz and Tamaulipas. Some areas may receive isolated maximum amounts up to 10 inches, and could experience flash-flooding and mudslides.
According to the National Hurricane Center, TD8 is going to be short-lived because it is moving over land. In fact, the NHC expects the depression to become a remnant low pressure area over the weekend of Sept. 7 and 8 as it drops more rainfall on its track to the west-southwest.Text credit: Rob Gutro

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
