Scientists Wire Bats for Sonar Secrets

Israeli researchers are using bats to develop better radar and sonar systems. By attaching GPS units and microphones to the animals, scientists hope to learn more about the bats’ remarkable echolocation abilities and adapt that knowledge to systems for human use.

The video didn't have sound when I tried to watch it. I don't understand why we need to study sonar and radar anymore unless it's to make what we have better or understand how a bat's systemw works.

Sigh.....who the heck cares about the Isrealis developing better sonar and radar systems? Just sounds like another excuse to pad the old war chest at the expense of these beautiful creatures!

What they really should learn from them is to leave others alone. You don't see bats learning from humans. They don't give a damn. Just leave them alone. Educate yourselves through other ways. Here's a great way to learn important stuff: M-e-d-i-t-a-t-i-o-n.
