Today on In Case You Missed It: Virgin Galactic's Unity spaceplane took to the skies once again following its earlier crash to perform its first successful "feather" maneuver. That's when the tail flaps flip up and the plane falls to Earth like a conventional crew capsule rather than, you know, a plane.

We also take a look at a crazy piece of animation software developed at the University of Edinburgh which leverages machine learning neural networks to generate stunningly lifelike movements for video game characters. The science behind it is pretty tricky but the results speak for themselves.
