    Flight of the bumblebee. The principles of bumblebee flight, and insect flight, generally have been pretty well understood for many years. Somehow though the idea that bees "violate aerodynamic theory" got embedded in folklore. According to the accepted theory of the day, bumblebees didn't generate enough lift to fly. The real challenge with bees wasn't figuring out the aerodynamics but the mechanics: specifically, how bees can move their wings so fast, roughly 200 beats per second, which is 10 or 20 times the firing rate of the nervous system.
