It would still be able to fly, there's still air for it to flap against, but it would be really hilarious to watch.

Cats are stupid, but birds are hella raw. So birds win because they don't need space to fly.

Could it fly in Zero-G?

Here is a cat in a Zero-G simulator aircraft, so you can see its really confused... how would a bird work in Zero-G?

cat in zero-g



cat: "WOAH!! GUYZZ THIS IS TOTALLY NOT COOL!!!"
#8
well the problem for a cat is that they have a mechanism that means when they are falling they flip or twist to be the right way up, hence cats always landing on their feet, but with no gravity it ****s it up


now a bird could still fly, but not would probably be rather confused
#9
I doubt it could cope at all. A bird relies on gravity to land on things.....it knows when it stops flapping its wings it gets closer to the ground. A bird in zero-g would flap its wings and fly straight up into the ceiling. That and the fact that it uses differences in air pressure, above and below its wings to sustain flight. There being no pressure in space...it would travel in the direction it first jumped in no matter how hard it flapped its wings.

A bird could still fly, but it'd be messed up by not knowing which direction is down. If a human can fly in space then so can a bird. It's all about having something to push off against, which would be the same as with gravity - air.
#11
but if its Zero gravity, a bird would attempt to fly up but there is no up

They are pressurised. I expect a bird would be able to adjust its behaviour.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Not at all actually. 1) Humans don't fly in space. 2) Even if you have something to push off of in space there is no friction to slow you down, or gravity to bring you back. Once you leave whatever you pushed off of you are stuck going that direction, gaining speed, until something stops you. A birds wings would have no effect in space.

They might be able to cope in a zero-g simulator, but the original question was about actual zero-g.

no the question is zero G


there is air in a space ship, air provides friction, although not a lot of it

also pushing off of an object you would not gain speed until stopping, your speed would be consistent

a birds wings would indeed have no effect in space, but the question was with no gravity (therefore we assume he means in a spaceship like the cat and therefore air is present and also pressure)

Okay. We really need to bring this idea to fruition.

I can get a bird if anyone's got a pressurised plane handy.

I live right by the base, they got some kick ass jets

The bird would die of starvation because it requires gravity to swallow.

Your throat muscles do the swallowing, not gravity.

The bird could fly it just would have a very hard time stopping/landing. Until it hits the wall

he said birds, i don't know about birds but im assuming since he said it they do, it would make sense as well

Then we would have a bird in a spaceship.

DUH.

Well when a bird drinks water, they lift their heads up and jerk their necks up and down to swallow it.
You might assume they don't have internal throat muscles to just push down stuff but IDK
