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

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
