So the researchers are staff to the Korea Research Institute of Ships and Engineering. The study in question was not sanctioned, vetted or approved by the Korea Research Institute of Ships and Engineering. Only the Creationist orgs approved of the study. This is not any kind of peer review. Since we know, have the history and examples, of creationist subterfuge in such matters this one does not carry the sweet smell of legitimacy.
