...ivities and habitat. Observers on each side of the aircraft counted animals that they observed between two sets of rods placed on the wings of the plane. Using statistical techniques of extrapolation, they calculated estimates of how many animals there were on a landscape. To their surprise, the results in ...

...ic.) But newly available data sets, blending early aircraft and ship reports with more recent satellite measurements that are considered more reliable than the earlier records, show that the September ice actually declined at a rate of about 7.8 percent per decade during the 1953-2006 period. "This suggest...

Is there a pilot in the insect?

...eed, in other words without using any of the usual aircraft onboard flight aids like radar, GPS, radio-altimeters and variometers. An insect brain wouldn't cope with these cumbersome, heavy, energy-consuming devices. This important work shows that this new science called biorobotics, that the team from Ma...

Dragonfly migration resembles that of birds, scientists say

...ki, tracked the insects for up to 10 days fromboth aircraft and handheld devices on the ground.They found that the dragonflies' flight patterns showed manysimilarities to those of birds that migrate over the same regions ofcoastal New Jersey. "The dragonflies' routes have showed distinct stopover and migrati...

Engineers discover why toucan beaks are models of lightweight strength

...-composite could inspire the design of ultra-light aircraft and vehicle components with synthetic foams made with metals and polymers. "The big surprise was our finding that the beak's sandwich structure also behaves as a high energy impact-absorption system," said Meyers. "Panels that mimic toucan beaks ma...

A Dornier Do-228 aircraft flown by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) was the platform for two airborne sensors operating simultaneously: the Experimental Synthetic Aperture Radar (E-SAR) built by DLR, which can acquire imagery at differing radar wavelengths and polarisations,...

Wright bros. upstaged! Dinos invented biplanes

...ing to contemplate that perhaps avian flight, like aircraft evolution, went through a biplane stage before the monoplane was introduced, said Chatterjee. "It seems likely that Microraptor invented the biplane 125 million years before the Wright 1903 Flyer." The discovery of Microraptor and other small, exqui...
