    Thumbs up here come Spider-goat

    After finding something this amazing over the web, I tough I could share this news with you. Also, this is a experiment taking place in my own country.

    See : "Teaching goats to make spider silk"

    The idea is not too silly. The spider silk is one of the hardest thing ( at equal scale) on the earth. More than be hard, it is light and can stretch almost twice is size. We, humans, could make great use of this material. Imagine, "It is estimated that a strand of spider silk the thickness of a pencil can stop a Boeing 747 airplane..."
    Coming soon.........

    Aww... I'll never be able to drink goat milk ever again. Playing with the laws of nature is something I don't like to hear about. Although the material could enhance technology but it's still morally wrong. Goats make milk and taste good covered in curry. That's it. No silk.

    Not an Anime Spoiler topic... Moving to Cyberlounge...

    The thing is, it's one thing to produce the proteins that produce spider silk. It's another thing to extract the proteins, (which harden on contact with air...) and spin them into threads.... That's the hard part...

    And protein polymers (which rely upon 'weak' molecular bonds) can't compare to the strengh of carbon nanotubes (which have 'strong' carbon to carbon molecular bonds) Only carbon nanotubes based material would have the strength for something like the hypothetical orbital space elevator...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.
