While manned shuttle missions ended back in 2011, the US government is still sending reusable spacecraft into orbit. This past weekend the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle returned from its super-secret two year mission. Speculation about what the craft was doing up there all this time ranges from; testing autonomous navigation system to evaluating if the X-37B is suitable for surveillance.

Meanwhile back on earth, there's a kickstarter for a jacket inspired by Back to the Future. Based on the clothing Marty McFly wears in the future (which happened two years ago in 2015), the SDJ-02 coat drys itself off, can heat or cool its wearer, and has a battery pack and pockets for your tablet and smartphone. Sadly it doesn't have self-adjusting sleeves.

As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @strngwys.
