On Penguins And Submarines, Airplanes, And So On!




Interesting finding here:

Aerodynamics In The Animal World. Yes, I know: Another Google automatic translation. But, it is better to read something slightly comprehensible than nothing at all. The main ideas are very clear, I think. :)

The article has to do with the aerodynamics on animal bodies, such as the Penguin's, and how it deals with aerodynamical problems - turbulence, acceleration issues, and etc.

The Penguin's streamlined body could be an inspiration when it comes to submarine body design, helping to create even quieter, faster, and more efficient submarines. Let alone it could also be applied on other areas strongly relying on aerodynamics, such as airplanes, rockets, and etc.

I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches final fantasy xi gil, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away FFXI Gil.experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards final fantasy xi gil.

You laugh at me for being different, but I laugh at you for being the same LOTRO Gold, the consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past Lord Of The Rings Gold, to change your future,LOTRO Gold alter your decisions today.
