Aren't these little winged jewels stunning? 😍 These pretty flies are new to science. They're Australian soldier flies (family: Stratiomyidae), which haven't been studied much here yet. Can't wait to see what other maggots-turned-beauties are out there! 📷 : @BrytheFlyGuy/CSIRO

Hey Ron, during periods of drought, the sea level pressure over Australia’s east coast is usually higher than normal. This is because the atmosphere is more stable and there is less cloud coverage. As such ECLs are harder to develop. ^KR

This is a bobtail squid. They're a group of cephalopods closely related to cuttlefish. ⁣ They light up as they have a symbiotic relationship with bioluminescent bacteria. They inhabit a special light organ inside the squid's mantle. ⁣ 🦑✨⠀⠀ ⠀ 📸: snorkeldownunder (IG)

Q3) Yes, definitely. But to deal with these issues, we specifically design the cells and battery pack to have aspects to them that mitigate this problem. Thanks for all your questions! ^KR

Q2) This will be difficult due to the existing equipment onboard and those designs not catering to take heavy batteries. But, that doesn’t stop us from evaluating with companies whether this is a cost-effective method for deploying the technology. ^KR

Hi there! Q1) - Testing and evaluation will be critical to demonstrate the tech can meet the demands of operation.Whilst we can design the battery and the pack, we will need to partner with various companies/governments in the supply chain to be able to deploy the tech. ^KR

It can suck to be single on the most romantic days of the year. But some people and animals much prefer to go it alone. For example, the platypus. Happy ! 📷: Laura Romin & Larry Dalton
