Bombardier Beetle Aids In Engine Design

“A type of beetle that defends itself by spraying high-pressure streams of boiling liquid at predators may help engineers design a better aircraft engine.” Engineers are specifically studying the shape of the combustion chamber in the bombardier beetle’s abdomen in order to design propulsion systems that more reliably re-ignite engines that have stalled due to extremely cold temperatures.
