Comment Mars (Score 1) 81 81

Every time I read a story about the Space-X reusable rocket I can't help but wonder if they have one eye on their stated goal of going to Mars. Landing a whole rocket vertically on the surface of Mars would probably go a long way towards making a return journey feasible.

Google Donates Windowbuilder, Codepro To Eclipse 150 150

h00manist writes "Google is donating Windowbuilder Pro and Codepro Profiler to the Eclipse project. 'Google acquired the software when it bought Instantiations, relaunching the Java graphical user interface building tool Windowbuilder Pro shortly after. Now the outfit has decided to donate both Windowbuilder Pro and the code analysis tool Codepro to the open source Eclipse project. Although Google has announced its intention to donate the software, it needs go through a rigorous filtering process to ensure that no intellectual property rights will be breached. Once those formalities are dealt with, it is likely that both Windowbuilder Pro and Codepro will tip up in the Indigo release of Eclipse sometime in June 2011.'"
