Micronesia is also under a high surf advisory for all shores. The National Weather Service Bulletin from Guam noted "Hazardous surf of 12 to 14 feet will persist along all shores through Wednesday...then gradually subside below hazardous levels on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. Coastal inundation of a foot above high tide is possible tonight." These swells and wind waves are a result of Tropical Storm 02W as it moves away from the area. The swells and surf conditions will be felt across the Republic of Palau and Yap state through tomorrow.
As 02W keeps moving away from Yap, animated multispectral satellite imagery showed convective banding of thunderstorms wrapping into the storm's low level circulation center. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite captured a microwave image of 02W earlier today and it showed that there is deep convection (thunderstorms) wrapping around the storm's center from the southeast to the southwest indicating there's still some punch in the tropical storm.
The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical Storm 02W on March 23 at 0453 UTC (12:53 a.m. EDT) far to the east of the Philippines. There was still some strong convection near the storm's center.
The forecast from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center notes that 02W should continue moving northwestward and should run into a trough, an elongated area of low pressure, which should weaken 02W. Thereafter, it will be subjected to increasing vertical wind shear which will weaken the storm further.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
