A snot-harvesting drone could help researchers study whales

Stashed in: Whales!, Science!, Drones, Whales, Drones!, the new, yeah, science!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Drones can lurk above whales and catch the spray from their blowholes for later research.

Is there a benefit to catching it as spray rather than land on the whale blowhole for epidermal collecting?

That title has everything!

I had never heard the phrase "snot harvesting" before. 

Same concept, but for human babies:  Nosefrita the Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator

"Nosefrita"? Really?!

haha!  yes!  those are crucial for cleaning little stuffy noses!!

There's a lot of money in cleaning things.
