(Phys.org) -- Not everyone is game enough to fit a laser beam on to a sharks head and live to tell the tale intact, but not everyone is a marine biologist, either. Last month, marine biologist Luke Tipple, armed with a career in the study of sharks, accepted the request from handheld laser manufacturers, Wicked Lasers, to attach a Wicked Lasers laser beam to a sharks fin, which he did with success. On a diving trip in the Bahamas, he fit a laser device onto a lemon sharks dorsal fin and tested the sharks movements.
