GeneralQuestion for the fluid dynamicists here PinmemberMunchies_Matt27-Jul-14 22:38 
I was snorkelling at the weekend and saw a bottle of beer on the sea bed with the top on, I went down to have a look and sure enough, it did. I let it drop back to the sea bed, vertically, neck up, expecting it to hold that position the entire way, but it didn't, it turned sideways, and fell the entire distance sideways, straight down, without any wobble, or instability.
 

Wow I thought, a bottle of beer, falling through water, has LESS drag falling sideways then length ways?
 
I was surprised.
 
Can anyone suggest a reason why this should be?
