iTwixie Talks Bees!
January 21, 2010

After training honeybees to return to a platform, scientists studied how the bees landed safely no matter how the platform was tilted or turned.  After watching videos of the honeybees, researchers and engineers now think that planes and spacecraft should simplify their landings by copying the honeybee’s system.

We can learn so much from bees — remember The Power of BeesAre Killer Bees Real?, and Bumblebees – Too Fat To Fly? How cool is that!?
