Tropical Depression Nine formed over the western Bay of Campeche, Gulf of Mexico and is forecast to make a quick landfall on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. NOAA's GOES-East Satellite captured the birth of the depression.
NOAA's GOES-East Satellite captured an image of the birth of Tropical Depression 9 on Oct. 22 at 1600 UTC (12 p.m. EDT) in the western Bay of Campeche. The clouds associated with the depression stretched over the Yucatan Peninsula and into the western Caribbean Sea.

On Oct. 22, a Tropical Storm Warning was in effect from Celestun to Frontera, Mexico. The National Hurricane Center noted that the center of tropical depression nine (TD9) was located near latitude 19.4 north and longitude 92.4 west.
The depression is stationary, but a slow eastward motion should begin later today. On the forecast track...the center of the Tropical cyclone will be near the coast of the Mexican State of Campeche tonight or early Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 35 mph (55 kph) and the depression could become a tropical storm before it moves inland.
The depression is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 5 to 10 inches across the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico with a maximum of 15 inches possible.
These rainfall amounts may produce life-threatening flash floods. Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in portions of the warning area by late this afternoon or evening.
Tropical Depression 9 is expected in intensify to tropical storm strength before making landfall in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
