how could they do that to bats? bats are mammals. does that mean they can do it with people? I'm not trying to disproove you but it sounds a little far fetched to me. where did you hear that from, do you have a website I could go to for mor info.
Dude the Navy tried to teach dolphins to swim bombs into soviet submarines, the bats were an experiment too. Do a little research on the history of WWII and you will uncover the bat experiement. You know History textbooks and libraries have lots of that kind of info...
the part I doubt is the freezing part. I have never heard of anyone succesfully freezing a mammal and bringing it back to life. I have heard about use with dolphins and the navy still uses them to this day.
Anybody ever hear the story about the Russians using dogs with explosives strapped to them to try and blow up German tanks? They trained them using Russian tanks, you can imagine the results, can you say "doh!"
<<30,000 ft, eh? That's a good distance. I'm willing to bet some of the birds that are natural soarers (raptors, etc.) could make it down; they get way the heck up there on their own anyway. But I'm no expert.>> Bold added.
Heard back from my naturalist friend. For some reason I found the bold part humerous, maybe it's just the phrase "way the heck up there".
Great post, not only do we have computer geeks here but science ones too! I'm not knocking anybody, I fall into on those categories myself. I guess on my next commercial flight I'll have to give this one a try, just need to find somebody on the ground that can verify it.
I'm amazed by the information you can learn at this place.
