If you were disturbed by Snakes on a Plane, we’re sorry to inform you that slithering reptiles are in need of no aeronautics device to fly through the air.  A team of scientists is currently studying a species of snake that glides from tree to tree in the rainforest in the hopes of applying the physics of the feat to airborne robotics (Robosnake?).

Check out this video to see a flying snake in action, as researchers break down the perplexing physics at play.
