Hey ATS saw this video the other day and I would have never guessed what the fastest living thing was... Check out the video below I bet nobody could guess what it is.

That was incredible. Just imagine what that would look like if it were scaled up 100x.


And of course the question arises, how did it know to fly away from the poop?

Fascinating! Nature's perfection in purposeful design again. Those trichomes look somewhat familiar too

Thanks TVN for some edumucationz


Peace,

Have they checked Cheetah and Gazelle poo..?


I bet those spores break the sound barrier...

Oh man, funniest thing I've seen all day!!!
Thanks, I needed a smile!

That's incredible!
Imagine the technology we can achieve by studying this! If we can mimic the liquid inside that pouch that shoots the spore, we could make all sorts of things with that! A few examples that come off the top of my head :

Alternative Energy
Breakthrough in Weapon Design
New propulsion methods for jets on an aircraft carrier

The sky's the limit with the possibilities! Since the dawn of time nature has been telling us how to use her gifts, she leaves us clues in her fingerprints. What an awesome find, star and flag.

I could not agree more with this statement
Nature is the best teacher out there!

This is why I love ATS, learn something new almost everyday.

This gives new meaning to the saying: "Holy S**t, I'm getting outta here!" LOL!


On a serious note, whatever is holding that spore onto that liquid sack has some serious holding power. That could definitely be used as glue / seal.

Misleading thread title.
The spores, as Hammond explained in the video, are the fastest ACCELERATORS.
Not the fastest top speed.

The thread title while not accurate was effective, I mean could you say you knew any of that info even the delineation of Top speed as to Accelerator, looking from a layman's view, I for one learned something new.
What I did find very interesting was the fact that even on such a small scale the movement of liquid dynamics stayed true, even to the point of the mass retrieving the excess liquid after expulsion, meaning the surface tension of the liquid itself was held together by the immense pressure "scaled down" of course upon launch, obviously condensing power for the optimum distance, no loss of energy, nature is friggin brilliant!

Amazing, creation is mind boggling. Every thing is available for us to mimic, eventually we will copy this and create something of the sort, a high speed transport system.

this video is perverted =/ you should have warned me that it was sexual

That's pretty amazing mate, thanks for this!


And there was me thinking "Cheetah"

i wish they would have shown a coin spinning or somethingslowed down 10,000x for comparison of the speed of the spore ejections... cool **** though.

Very amazing, thanks for the post OP. 20,000 G's according to the video, that is G-D-ridiculous if you ask me. Really leaves one in awe of how intelligent evolution is.

What about its top speed before deceleration?
