I Explain Electric Eels (IEEE)

by Andre on 11 December 2005

...and then someone else does. The “Ask an Expert” column at Scientific American recently featured a response to a question about electric eels’ shocks. Of course, people that have been reading Biocurious from the start already knew the answer.

Scientific American reminds me of American scientists and that reminds of the article I just read (via 3 Quarks Daily) from the American Scientist. It has some incredible high speed photography of propagating shock waves. It’s like the real world version of the Matrix bullet effect. It’s a must see!
