Could Owls Help Make Aircraft Propellers Quieter ?

The University of Cambridge researchers who examined owl feathers found that feathers were made up of microscopic coverings and a porous elastic fringe on the trailing edge that scatters sound without having adverse impacts on aerodynamics.

They copied the structure on 3D-printed plastic and tested it on a wind turbine in a wind tunnel. The researchers were able to register significantly reduced noise levels. They believe it could be applied to aircraft propellers or even computer fans to muffle noise.

It's either this, or put a recording of Bill Hicks' "Gideons" in the drawer along side the Gideon Bible. Maybe both.

Let's see if I have the discipline to stick with this. The blog is entitled "NotWorththeBreath" in reference to how I usually feel about the physical act of speaking.

Decided to set up a SoundCloud stream for my shitty music. Figured it would be more convenient to have the ability to stream it with the option to download instead of having to download the files from my Google Drive and listen to them locally.
37 year old dude from southern WV. Been writing music on-and-off since 1995 (mostly off as of late). Interested in science, skepticism, music, and bad movies. Most of the tracks uploaded here were recorded using a terrible computer headset mic, some were recorded on an almost equally terrible Tascam X-14 4-track recorder and transferred to the computer, and one or two were recorded with a smartphone.

Here's a little "Is that in the Bible?" fun... Ezekiel 23:19-20 (RSV):

"Yet she increased her harlotry, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the harlot in the land of Egypt and doted upon her paramours there, whose members were like those of asses, and whose issue was like that of horses."

How's that for "inspired," eh?

Don't normally care for this show, but I'll listen to almost any interview with Doc Bob.
