Spineless wonders

The newly redesigned Scientific American seems to have more short articles of general interest - good for readers like me, I suppose. In one we learn that scientists have discovered that squid can fly - as much as 10m, propelled by jet-like streams of expelled water. Someone's finally caught it in pictures, which expert eyes even think confirm that "mollust aeronautics" involves using fins for navigation!
