Emilia's remnants appear as a light swirl of clouds on satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-15 satellite. GOES-15 sits in a fixed orbit over the western U.S. and provides weather imagery. In an image from July 16 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) while Hawaii was still in the pre-dawn hours, infrared imagery on GOES-15 captured the ghostly image of Hurricane Emilia's remnants.
This image was taken on July 16, 2012, at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) from the GOES-15 satellite. It shows the remnants of Hurricane Emilia southeast of Hawaii, and Hurricane Fabio far to the east. Emilia is seen by infrared imagery because the storm is in darkness, while Fabio is seen in visible light. Credit: Credit: NASA GOES Project
Those remnants were about 800 miles east-southeast of Hilo and are moving to the west at close to 20 mph. The National Hurricane Center noted that conditions are not favorable for re-development.
Meanwhile, the showstopper continues to be Hurricane Fabio, although now weaker than it was over the weekend. Fabio is in the daylight and is shown in GOES-15 visible imagery. Both the infrared and visible imagery were combined by NASA's GOES Project, located at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. NOAA manages the GOES satellites, but NASA's GOES project creates images and animations.
At 11 a.m. EDT on July 16, Fabio took a northwesterly turn. Fabio is now headed northwest at 8 mph (13 kmh) and is expected to turn to the north over the next couple of days, according to the National Hurricane Center. Fabio is also moving into cooler waters which is expected to weaken the tropical cyclone down to depression status. Fabio's maximum sustained winds were still near 75 mph (120 kmh) at 11 a.m. EDT. Fabio was centered near 18.9 North and 119.9 West, about 700 miles (1,130 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.
As Fabio continues to move closer to Baja California, ocean swells and rip currents are a concern along the coast there as well as in southern California.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

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...
