The albatross gives up the secrets of its effortless long flight

Recommended Posts

For those who study the science of aerodynamics the albatross has long been a, well, albatross around the neck. This is a seabird that can fly 10,000 miles in one journey, effortlessly traversing the stormiest of seas with barely a flap — and no one has been sure how it does it.

 

Quite incredible
