From the Sydney Morning Herald, January 8 2014, CSIRO ‘apologises’ for lack of research on dragons
The CSIRO has promised to step up its dragon research program, after a seven-year-old girl wrote asking them to make her a dragon.
“Over the past 87 odd years we have not been able to create a dragon or dragon eggs. We have sighted an eastern bearded dragon at one of our telescopes, observed dragonflies and even measured body temperatures of the mallee dragon. But our work has never ventured into dragons of the mythical, fire breathing variety. And for this Australia, we are sorry.”
