Whereever did these two get that idea?

From Treehugger come reports of new research into the fluid dynamics of stingray movement and its possible application to deepwater unmanned vehicles:

Researchers at University at Buffalo and Harvard University are studying stingrays to find out how their unique movement and shape allows them to glide through the water so effortlessly. The findings will be used to design more efficient and agile unmanned underwater vehicles for exploring deep sea spots or even clean up and rescue vehicles.

Genius work, guys, I’m sure this will win you a Nobel Prize. How ever did you come up with that idea?

Just kidding. Even Jar Jar Binks figured out that when it comes to underwater navigation, stingrays know what’s what:
