Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus [infographic]

August 19, 2010 |  by  |  Movies

Sharks are known for their prehistoric roots and fatal strength. Octopuses are extremely smart. I haven’t seen the movie, so I can’t tell you who won. I’m rooting for the octopus. Sharks are too popular. Everyone is always talking about them, but octopuses never get to be in the lime light.

Well sometimes, when they start to film their own documentary with a stolen camera. Or when we learned that they actually walk on the seabed, and that they disguise themselves as coconuts using the shell. Octopuses are way cooler. [Via]

    That assumes the plane is at the lowest altitude. With the aircraft at cruising altitude, the velocity required increases to 420… meters per second. Which is equivalent to about 1500 kph, a bit over the speed of sound. And that’s *without* including air resistance. For reference, escape velocity is 690 meters per second.

    Assuming it has a mass of 100 metric tons (typical great whites weigh about 1.5 metric tons… not 7), the required energy is approximately 42 megajoules or ‘roughly the amount of energy consumed by burning one kiloliter of natural gas’.

    And, of course, we’re happily ignoring both air and water resistance. Add those, and the figures will increase significantly.
