Flies move like fighter jets

New research has shed light on why flies are such expert aviators. Using high-speed cameras, scientists at the University of Washington recorded the little wing and body movements enabling them to bank and pitch far from threats, much the identical as a state-of-the-art fighter jet, and that they can alter direction in but five milliseconds. the subsequent stage of the research is to place fruit flies during a special simulator to record neural activity, which could help explain their lightning-quick responses.
