Discovered: Fungus Spews Spores at 55 Mph
Scientists report in the journal PLoS ONE that fungi may be one of the fastest land species, clocking speeds of up to 55 miles per hour and producing accelerations 180,000 times greater than gravity.
Using ultrahigh-speed video, the researchers calculated that some fungi use their own natural water pressure like squirt guns to eject their spores. The researchers used video to clock the spores speeding along at 55 mph.
