NASA was suggested to me by your use of rockets ;-) If you had used 
fishes or birds, another institution would have come to my mind. 
However, your thought remains valid and why not just take the step? 
Flock modelling would certainly draw their attention I guess, and of 
interest to professionals studying animal behaviour. I don't know about 
a /quick/ MS though... :-)
