New crowdsourcing place for inventors

If you like finding use for new ideas or are just into checking out neat innovations. Well this may be just for you. Marblar.com is a new crowd-sourcing service to connect inventors and people who like finding homes for inventions.

“There are a lot of dormant inventions just gathering dust in research universities,” says Daniel Perez, Marblar’s CEO

The team, formed by three UK-based PhD students (one American, one German and one British) is planning to launch their beta near September.

MSL Curiosity successful landing

Curiosity roverThe Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) spacecraft that carried Curiosity succeeded in every step of the most complex landing ever attempted on Mars.

The descent stage used rocket engines to reduce its speed and finally at about 35 meters (115 feet) above the surface, the Sky Crane system lowered Curiosity, wheels-down, toward the ground. It landed at the gentle speed of 0.6mph. Soon after landing the rover sent its first set of images of the red planet.

You can see the excitement of NASA engineers as Curiosity’s landing was confirmed.
