SNAPSHOT: Researchers Put a Bat in a Wind Tunnel to Study its Flight

This little bat is chasing snacks for science. And in the process, he's teaching us more about aerodynamics. This guy is one of two brown long-eared bats (P. auritus) trained to fly in a wind tunnel by scientists at Sweden’s Lund University. It turns out there’s still a lot we don’t know about bat flight, particularly when it comes to turning in midair. To investigate this, the research team created a unique experimental setup combining a wind tunnel, high speed cameras, and a mealworm at
