TD15-E formed about 470 miles/755 km south of the southern tip of Baja California, near 16.1 north and 110.2 west. By 5 a.m. EDT on Oct. 13, TD15-E became Tropical Storm Octave. Octave's maximum sustained winds peaked at 65 mph/100 kph at 11 p.m. EDT on Oct. 13 when it was about 215 miles/345 km northwest of Socorro Island, near 20.6 north and 113.7 west.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard NASA's Terra satellite saw Tropical Storm Octave in the Gulf of California and Tropical Storm Priscilla in the open waters of the Eastern Pacific on Oct. 14 at 2:40 p.m. EDT.
By 5 p.m. EDT/2100 UTC on Oct. 15, Octave had become a post-tropical cyclone. It was located near latitude 26.9 north and longitude 109.4 west in the Gulf of California, about 80 miles/130 km north-northwest of Los Mochis, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds decreased to near 25 mph/35 kph.
The post-tropical cyclone was moving toward the north-northeast near 5 mph/7 kph and that general motion continued until the system moved over mainland Mexico between Guaymas and Los Mochis. Although Octave dissipated on Oct. 16 the remnants brought large rainfall totals to mainland Mexico, between 3 to 6 inches over the state of Sonora.Text credit: Rob Gutro

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
