Re: bee fast
Yeah, I didn't realize that bees could fly so fast, but I had one in my car that was flying at no less than 70 miles per hour.

Yeah but they have to fly over 60,000 MPH just to keep up with the Earth as it revolves around the Sun.

And with the rotation some of that flying is backwards, and sideways. Damn, they're good.

Re: bee fast
I'm guessing they don't look quite so smart in zero gravity.

Neither do we.

But we get used to it in a few hours and so do bees.

See NASA Challenger STS-41C, April 1984
