When we came to the wind tunnel, the master student Gide Koekkoek showed us the new invention, a robotic bat wing. This makes it easier to study air flow etc compared to using real bats that not always is so cooperative. If you want to know more about bat flight and different studies done in the wind tunnel, don´t miss the dissertation of PhD student Florian Muijres on the 28th of April. It takes place in the Blue Hall, the Ecology building.
