Description

The Ocean Alliance, partnered with the Olin College of Engineering, has developed a new method to get lung lining samples from whales. Lung lining samples tell researchers what toxins are present in the whale, show virus and bacteria loads, and give each specific whale's DNA. Because Snot Bot is non-invasive, Iain Kerr believes scientists will be able to gather more data, more easily thus revolutionizing whale research. Ocean Alliance's Snot Bot KickStarter has even drawn the attention of Sir Patrick Stewart. Thanks to: NowThis
