In an image captured by NOAA's GOES-15 satellite, all three tropical cyclones were seen spinning in the eastern Pacific Ocean on July 10, 2012 at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. EDT). Daniel has weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm and appears smaller than Hurricane Emilia.

Daniel is about 180 miles in diameter, while Emilia is over 250 miles in diameter. System 98E, the low pressure system east of Emilia, is dwarfed by the large hurricane. NOAA manages the GOES-15 satellite, and NASA's GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. uses the data to create images and animations of weather around the U.S.
Tropical Storm Daniel's winds were now down to 65 mph (100 kmh). At 8 a.m. PDT/11 a.m. EDT, the center of Tropical Storm Daniel was located near latitude 15.3 north...longitude 135.1 west. That's about 1,350 miles (2, 175 km) east of Hilo, Hawaii. It is moving west near 16 mph (26 kmh) and is expected to keep moving in that direction over the next couple of days. Daniel is expected to weaken to tropical depression status by July 11.
On July 10 at 5 a.m. EDT, Emilia's maximum sustained winds were near 140 mph (220 kmh). By 11 a.m. EDT, Emilia's maximum sustained winds dropped to 130 mph (215 kmh) and was still holding onto Category 4 hurricane status. Emilia was located about 685 miles (1100 km) south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Emilia is moving at 10 mph (17 kmh) to the west-northwest.
System 98E is slowly coming together, and has a 40 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next day or two.

DESY and MPSD scientists create high-order harmonics from solids with controlled polarization states, taking advantage of both crystal symmetry and attosecond electronic dynamics. The newly demonstrated technique might find intriguing applications in petahertz electronics and for spectroscopic studies of novel quantum materials.
The nonlinear process of high-order harmonic generation (HHG) in gases is one of the cornerstones of attosecond science (an attosecond is a billionth of a...
Nano- and microtechnology are promising candidates not only for medical applications such as drug delivery but also for the creation of little robots or flexible integrated sensors. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have created magnetic microparticles, with a newly developed method, that could pave the way for building micro-motors or guiding drugs in the human body to a target, like a tumor. The preparation of such structures as well as their remote-control can be regulated using magnetic fields and therefore can find application in an array of domains.
The magnetic properties of a material control how this material responds to the presence of a magnetic field. Iron oxide is the main component of rust but also...
Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.
Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...
The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.
A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.
"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
