Waterproof Glue

I keep meaning to get around to post about this article I found on waterproof glue and how it relates to Antarctica. It only took
me 4 days. This article is very interesting talking about Foraminifera (small underwater creatures) and how they act as carbon sinks in the Antarctic waters. It also however talks about their ability to produce an underwater adhesive to make their shells out of sand. It sounds like the research could eventually lead to more effective adhesives for a variety of uses including biomedicine.
