  1. From the show “Survivor” there is a species of jellyfish, washed into a pool with no predators, that have lost their ability to sting.
    What type of jellyfish are in this tank – and how toxic are their stings?
    It would be interesting to measure the power of their sting, if the artists could keep it going. Maybe bring some biologists in to support the work.
