LRO Sends its First Lunar Images to Earth
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has transmitted its first images since reaching the moon on June 23. The spacecraft's two cameras, collectively known as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, or LROC, were activated June 30.

Trace of Time Clock: Erases Tasks as Deadlines Pass
Pictured above is one of the most genius adaptations of the so-called "clock" that we've ever seen, and while the concept has been around for a tick, Il-Gu Cha's masterpiece is just now making its way around the expo circuit and showing itself off in a new video.

Sure, the inability to hit the snooze on certain items could prove aggravating, but it's safe to say this is a bona fide procrastination killer at the very least. Peek the video just past the break.
SSolar Blimp Takes to French Skies
A team of French engineers is preparing a test flight of a helium blimp they’ve wrapped in flexible solar panels. If it goes well, by the end of the summer the team plans to cross the English Channel in an airship they say allows unlimited flight with zero emissions. Projet Sol’R made the blimp’s frame from aluminum frame and covered it in an outer wrap made from nylon and polyethylene. The blimp is 22 meters (72 feet) long and it is powered by semi-flexible solar cells are capable of generating 2.4 kilowatts.View original post here:
