The Bombardier Beetle

We have Professor Andy McIntosh with us on Sunday 14th January and he’s going to be explaining the extraordinary design of the bombardier beetle.

Professor McIntosh’s research into the Bombardier beetle has inspired a raft of practical applications including fuel injectors, pharmaceutical sprays, fragrancers, and fire extinguishers.

Dr. Andy McIntosh is one of Britain’s most eminent scientists. Formerly Professor of Thermodynamics at the University of Leeds (one of Britain’s elite “Russell Group” universities), his research team was awarded the outstanding contribution to innovation and technology award at the Times Higher Education awards in 2010 for developing a technology based on the defence mechanism of the bombardier beetle.

Professor Andy McIntosh DSc, has lectured and researched in Combustion and Thermodynamics for over 30 years. He has published over 195 papers on aerodynamics, thermodynamics, combustion, biomimetics, and the bombardier beetle research, which has led to a patented spray device for applications of this technology to pharmaceuticals, fuel injectors, and fire extinguishers.

He has debated academics in a number of universities, and lectures and speaks on apologetics in many countries on the importance of origins and in particular against atheism. He speaks in the UK and many countries abroad and delights to present the scientific evidence for creation and passionately believes that there is no excuse for scientific minds not to accept the truth of creation.
