Today on In Case You Missed It: Lockheed Martin is unveiling a new hybrid airship in a couple years (a la Hindenburg) but is first addressing any potential tears in the hull by creating magnetic robots they call spiders, which can crawl over the ship and work autonomously to patch holes as they appear. Meanwhile China's State Media says the country finished a year-long build of a huge seaplane that will be able to perform water rescues of up to 50 people at a time.

While the plane is down there, it could always pick up more of the mysterious orb just discovered by the Ocean Exploration Trust's vessel that may be an as-yet undiscovered species of mollusk. That video is here. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
