ICYMI: UAV for Land and Sea, Boeing's Super Rocket and More
Today on In Case You Missed It: The Drones For Good competition turned out a dual-purpose drone submission for use in search and rescue operations. The Loon Copter can both fly through the air and dive underwater -- a useful trait for evading other bad guy drones in any upcoming spy movies, we're certain.

Boeing is making progress on what will be most world's most powerful rocket. It's building the Space Launch System for NASA with the eventual goal of it bringing astronauts to Mars.

Evil little firestarters are going to have a harder time burning down their house if the new Plumis Automist fire sprinkler system gains popularity. It can detect hot spots with an infrared camera and targets any fires with a fine water mist. No word on what happens to the wildin' out home chefs with kitchen torches for their special crème brûlée. But we'll hope for the best.

Finally we had some fun with the Face Swap Live app and hope you do, too. Please share any interesting science or tech videos, anytime! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag to @mskerryd.
