Nature may inspire scientists in many cases, as the shape of the bird provided the first design for the wings of the plane, and the whale provided a prototype for submarine designers, but one of the oldest birds on Earth stunned scientists after cutting a flight that planes and spacecraft sometimes cannot.
The albatross was able to travel a huge distance by flying more than 6 times the distance between the Earth and the moon, since scientists began tracking it 70 years ago, meaning that it also traveled a distance before the tracking device was installed on it.
And it is at least 70 years old, since it was first detected and a tracking device was attached to it in 1956, as it recorded 3 million flight miles (4 million and 828 thousand and 32 kilometers), that is, 6 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon, back and forth.
