Satellite sees the formation of eastern Pacific's Tropical Depression 13E

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The thirteenth tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean season formed on Aug. 18. NOAA's GOES-Wet satellite captured an image of the new storm.

New bioimaging technique is fast and economical

( Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) A new approach to optical imaging makes it possible to quickly and economically monitor multiple molecular interactions in a large area of living tissue -- such as an organ or a small animal; technology that could have applications in medical diagnosis, guided surgery, or pre-clinical drug testing.

NASA looks at rainfall in Tropical Storm Harvey

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Harvey is now moving into the eastern Caribbean Sea. NASA's GPM core satellite examined the soaking rainfall the new tropical storm was generating along its path.

Discovered: A quick and easy way to shut down instabilities in fusion devices

( DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) This article describes suppression of instabilities with new neutral beam injector.

NASA gets a final look at Hurricane Gert's rainfall

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Before Hurricane Gert became a post-tropical cyclone, NASA got a look at the rainfall occurring within the storm. After Gert became post-tropical NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured an image as Gert was merging with another system.

PPPL delivers new key components to help power a fusion energy experiment

( DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Article describes PPPL design and delivery of components for neutral beam injectors for fusion experiments at DIII-D.

Spoiler alert: Computer simulations provide preview of next week's eclipse

( University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Researchers from Predictive Science Inc. used NASA and National Science Foundation-supported supercomputers to run highly-detailed forecasts of the Sun's corona -- the aura of plasma that surrounds the sun -- at the moment of the eclipse. The team combined data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, magnetic field maps, solar rotation rates and cutting-edge mathematical models to predict the state of the Sun's surface. The simulations are the largest produced by the group and include new physics.

Can Twitter aid disaster response? New IST research examines how

( Penn State) With over 500 million tweets sent every single day, new research from the Penn State College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) is investigating innovative ways to use that data to help communities respond during unexpected catastrophes.

Researchers discover new chemical process that could reduce nitrogen oxides from diesel exhaust

( University of Notre Dame) Chemical engineers at the University of Notre Dame have discovered a catalytic process that could help curb emissions of nitrogen oxides from diesel-powered vehicles, a priority air pollutant that is a key ingredient in smog.

Smart computers

( University of Freiburg) Artificial neural networks decode brain activity during performed and imagined movements.
