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.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
