The shortfin mako shark, one of the fastest shark species, can move upwards of 60 miles per hour through the water.

A new discovery unraveling the mysteries of shark skin could have implications for the speed and efficiency of more than just sharks—it could also change how we build planes, drones and wind turbines.
