Hurricane Harvey makes landfall in Texas, could be ‘on par with Katrina’ …

“The menacing Hurricane Harvey has made landfall in Texas as a category four storm with winds of up to 210 kilometres per hour, making it the most powerful storm in over a decade to hit the mainland United States.

The hurricane made a second landfall at about 1:00am local time (4:00pm AEST) near the shore of Copano Bay, north-east of Corpus Christi, and was downgraded to a category three, the National Weather Service said.

It gradually weakened over the next several hours and the National Hurricane Center said by 3:00am local time Harvey was back to a category two, sustaining winds of 185 kilometres per hour.”

“Researchers in China have taken the process a few steps further: They successfully teleported a photon from Earth to a satellite orbiting more than 311 miles away.

The satellite, called Micius, is a highly sensitive photo receiver capable of detecting the quantum states of single photons fired from the ground. Micius was launched to allow scientists to test various technological building blocks for quantum feats including entanglement, cryptography, and teleportation.”

Jeff’s Earth – NASA Johnson …

THIS IS A MUST WATCH


“The first time you see Planet Earth from space, it’s stunning; when you’ve spent 534 days in space—more than any other American—it still is! On his most recent trip the International Space Station NASA astronaut Jeff Williams used an Ultra High Definition video camera that he pointed at the planet 250 miles below; here he shares some of those images, and talks about the beauty of the planet, the variety of things to see, and the value of sharing that perspective with everyone who can’t go to orbit in person.
