This Little Girl's Request For A Dragon Came True

A young girl wrote a letter to an Australian scientist asking for a dragon. And the scientist's response makes it even better.

Australian science agency CSIRO recently received this adorable letter.

This instructional drawing was attached.

After receiving Sophie's letter, CSIRO published a blog post apologising to Australia for the lack of dragons.

"We've been doing science since 1926 and we're quite proud of what we have achieved. We've put polymer banknotes in your wallet, insect repellent on your limbs and Wi-Fi in your devices. But we've missed something.

There are no dragons.

Over the past 87 odd years we have not been able to create a dragon or dragon eggs... And for this Australia, we are sorry."

They ended by saying they're "looking into it". Thank you, lovely scientists!

Update — Jan. 13: CSIRO have created a dragon for Sophie using 3D printing.

Well done, lovely scientists.
