Watching the world’s fastest cheetah in slow motion will leave you in awe

The mechanics of movement that we see in animals can be a rich source of inspiration for innovators. We recently wrote about MIT’s robotic cheetah that runs and jumps. And in a newly released and widely-shared show-motion video by the National Geographic, we can get a close look at the unbelievable beauty of the world’s fastest cheetah.

The recently deceased cheetah lived in the Cincinnati zoo and was tracked at having record-breaking speed at 100 meters in 5.95 seconds, which equivocates to about 61 miles per hour. “She looked like a polka-dotted missile,” National Geographic photo editor Kim Hubbard said in 2012 when the animal was said to have the fastest timed 100-meters ever run by anything on the planet.
