NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Dokuri on June 27 on 0435 UTC (12:35 a.m. EDT). Infrared data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument onboard indicated there were still some strong showers and thunderstorms within the system. Those cloud top temperatures were colder than -63 Fahrenheit (-52 Celsius), indicating strong uplift in the atmopshere, and thunderstorms within Dokuri that have the capability for heavy rainfall.

Infrared data shows a fully-exposed low level-circulation center. The strongest convection (rising air that creates thunderstorms that make up the system)are being pushed to the southwest due to strong northeasterly vertical wind shear.
Warnings are up in the Philippines as Doksuri (known there as Dindo) continues to move north of Luzon today. Public storm warning signal #1 is in effect in Abra, Kalinga, Isabela, Ilocos Sur, Mt. Province, Ifugao, La Union, Benguet, Pangasinan, Nueva Vizcaya and Quirino. Public storm warning signal #2 is also in effect for Cagayan, Calayan Group of Islands, Babuyan Group of Islands, Batanes Group of Islands, Apayao, Ilocos Norte.
On June 28, 2012 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT), Tropical Storm Doksuri had maximum sustained winds near 35 knots. It was located approximately 335 nautical miles north of Manila, Philippines, near 20.4 North and 120.7 East. It was moving to the west-northwestward at 17 knots. The strongest convection and thunderstorms were located over northern Luzon at this time, and are moving off the northwestern coast of the Philippines.
Doksuri has weakened as it passes to the north of Luzon. Doksuri is expected to continue tracking west and make landfall near Hong Kong in two days.

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...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
