Today on In Case You Missed It: A professor from California is working on a plan to use photonic propulsion to get a spacecraft to Mars within 72 hours. It would use get the craft off of earth with the power generated by photons leaving a laser.

Boston Dynamics is showing its latest Atlas robot and not only is it way slimmer -- down to 180 pounds from 330 -- but it can get completely knocked down and stand back up. Look out, DARPA Challenge.

The Micro Drone 3.0 is on sale on Indiegogo for $175 and is small enough to not need to be registered by the FAA.

We also think you should check out the video for a projection animation designed to charm. As always, please share any interesting science or tech videos, anytime! Just tweet us with the #ICYMI hashtag to @mskerryd.
