Have You Ever Wonder How Does A Mosquito Fly?
Mosquitoes are strange fliers. Compared with other insects, birds, and bats, their shorter wing strokes and oddly long—and skinny—wings have made scientists wonder how they can get off the ground at all.
Now, a new study shows how these animals get their lift: with help from a clever rotation of their wings.
Most animals generate lift, the force that keeps them aloft, during the downstroke of each wing beat.
This creates a vortex of swirling air over the wing’s leading edge, which lowers the pressure above the wing and pushes the animal up.
