Otter Teeth and Airplanes

Recent research by aerospace engineer Herzl Chai of Tel Aviv University revealed that the structure of human and otter teeth could spell safer airplanes.  Human and otter molars are apparently quite similar in structure.  They  are comprised of layer upon layer of wavy fibers that are durable and can withstand quite a lot of wear and tear.  Current airplane technology uses a gridlike structure of glass and carbon fiber materials.  If planes were designed with a wavy structure, instead of the gridlike structure airplanes might not break up in crashes so badly.

Again- Mother Nature is the best model.

  1. Nice discussion and I like your input. Quick question. We are preparing to build a site using wordpress ourselves. Will you point out a good resource for templates and the best plug ins to make it easy for staff to update content in a nice user friendly way? Thx in advance.
