Cyclone Debbie makes landfall in Australia

Brisbane, March 28 (UITV/IANS) - Tropical Cyclone Debbie made landfall on Tuesday across the coast of northeast Australia, packing strong winds with gusts.

The storm is lashing the Queensland coast with torrential rain, bringing about a significant flooding risk, CNN quoted meteorologists as saying.

The Category 4 cyclone is the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane and is very slow-moving.

"With the very, very strong winds if they just sit there and twirl, it's like a battering ram," Queensland police commissioner Ian Stewart told 7 News Australia.

Credit Card Fraud: 2 Indian-Americans captured

Washington, March 28 (UITV/IANS) Two Indian-American men were sentenced by a US court for a $200 million international credit card fraud, one of the largest-ever exposed by federal authorities, said officials.

Vijay Verma and Tarsem Lal, both of Iselin, New Jersey, were sentenced to 14 months in prison and a year of house arrest, respectively, after previously pleading guilty to their roles in the scheme, according to a statement from the US Attorney for the District of New Jersey, news website NJ.com reported.

US District Judge Anne E. Thompson issued the sentence in Trenton federal court on Monday.

Verma and Lal, both owners of a Jersey City jewellery store, were indicted in October 2013 for fabricating more than 7,000 false identities to obtain tens of thousands of credit cards.

The scheme involved an "elaborate network of false identities" and thousands of "drop addresses" across the country -- including houses, apartments and P.O. boxes -- which were used as mailing addresses for the false identities, according to the report.

Sands of Saturn's moon Titan are electrically charged

New York, March 28 (UITV/IANS)- The particles that cover the surface of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, are "electrically charged", show results of an experiment.

The findings, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, may help explain an odd phenomenon -- prevailing winds on Titan blow from east to west across the moon's surface, but sandy dunes nearly 300 feet tall seem to form in the opposite direction.

"These electrostatic forces increase frictional thresholds," said the lead author of the study, Josh Mendez Harper from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in the US.

"This makes the grains so sticky and cohesive that...

NASA stopwatch to measure fraction of a billionth of second

Washington, March 28 (UITV/IANS)- NASA engineers have built a stopwatch that can measure accurately fraction of a billionth of a second.

The timer is to be used for the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) scheduled for launch in 2018, NASA said.

ICESat-2 will use six green laser beams to measure height. With its incredibly precise time measurements, scientists can calculate the distance between the satellite and the Earth below, and from there record precise height measurements of sea ice, glaciers, ice sheets, forests and the rest of the planet's surfaces.

"Light moves really, really fast, and if you're going to...
