Marine biologist creates “frickin’ sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their frickin’ fins”
As part of what’s being called (loosely) an experiment, marine biologist and Shark Week regularLuke Tipple attached a green laser to a shark in the Caribbean Sea. Tipple used a non-invasive clamp to attach the laser, designed to attach without causing pain to the animal. Over time, the clamp breaks down until it eventually falls off, per its design. The experiment is to see if sharks indeed avoid light of specific wavelengths, and to measure the shark’s velocity and trajectory.
