When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Depression 10W on July 25 at 0441 UTC (12:41 a.m. EDT), the infrared image captured by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument revealed a large area of very cold cloud top temperatures (-63F/-52C) from strong thunderstorms over the central Philippines. A second area of strong thunderstorms on the eastern side of circulation was over the Philippine Sea.

On July 25 at 0600 UTC (2 a.m. EDT) Tropical Depression 10W's maximum sustained winds were near 30 knots (34 mph/55 kmh). It was about 335 nautical miles (385 miles/ 620 km) east of Manila, Philippines near 13.8 North and 126.4 East. Tropical Depression 10W (TD10W) is moving to the northwest at 9 knots (10 mph/17 kmh).
Satellite imagery has shown that the bands of thunderstorms feeding into the center of TD10W's circulation. TD10W continues to become more organized. The system is in an area of low to moderate wind shear which is enabling it to become better organized.
At 11 a.m. EDT on July 25, a weather station in Daet, Philippines was reporting thunderstorms and rain, with winds from the west at 11 mph. Daet is the capital municipality in the Camarines Norte province. The local forecast calls for TD10W to affect the city through the day on July 26.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center forecasters expect TD10W to slowly intensify over the next two days and make landfall northeast of Hong Kong later this week.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
