Earth is filled with spectacular natural wonders and many of them are so common or small we pass by them each day without a glance or second thought. Vivid examples are the parachutes on the puff ball of a dandelion. Recent discoveries by an international team of scientists have revealed how these miniature aircraft can—under optimal conditions—remain aloft for miles. The dandelion seed’s aeronautical design is more efficient than any man-made parachute.
