    Dr Tsunemi Kubodera is out to get this magnificent animal once and for all.

    :archi:

    I would imagine there would be quite a bit of press about this as we get closer to the date.

    Post all here

    Go Ku! This is big news!

    What if they did something like the International Space Station? You could pay to go on the expedition... although I don't have an extra $35 million...

    I'm saving my pennies right now - if Dr. Kubodera finds the giant squid, maybe Tonmo can search for the colossal squid (or a living ammonite...).

    Hmmm.... maybe a stowaway is a more realistic method of joining this expedition....

    I wait in anticipation for the results of this documentary!
