The Biggest Myth in Science

This article, might not be easy to understand, contradicting and definitely, eye opening!

One of the biggest myth in science today, has got to be:
Bernoulli's Principle, is why planes fly!
It is actually, NOT TRUE!!

It is called, the Bernoulli myth. It is one of the most persistent, pernicious error in school science books.

Why is Bernoulli myth widely being accepted?
Bernoulli was the only person that came up with his explanation during the age of wonder, where people was wondering, what really made plane flies!

What is the real thing?
According to Norman Smith, research aerodynamicist for NASA explains "Very simple: Newton. Airplanes fly because the wing makes the air go down, so the airplane goes up. Action-reaction. Newton's third law."

Want to know more about flying? Learn from the bumble bees, the birds and all other animals which can really fly and you may wonder why mankind won't qualify at all!
