Scientists have taken inspiration from the flight of owls to develop “quieter” wind turbines and planes.   Early tests of a prototype coating for fan blades, which mimics the intricate structure of an owl’s wing, have demonstrated that it could significantly reduce the amount of noise produced by wind turbines and other types of fan … Continue reading Owls inspire ‘quieter’ wind turbines
