Spiders sprayed with Nano-Tubes weave Supersilk

Wissenschaftler haben Spinnen mit Kohlenstoffnanoröhren bespritzt und deren Spinnennetzzeugs (ohnehin schon eins der widerstandsfähigsten Materialien der Welt) mutierte daraufhin gleich zu Superwhoaspinnennetzzeugs. Impressive, spiders. Still hate you though.

“This is the highest toughness modulus for a fibre, surpassing synthetic polymeric high performance fibres (e.g. Kelvar49) and even the current toughest knotted fibers,” they say. In other words, giving spiders water that is infused with carbon nanotubes makes them weave silk stronger than any known fiber.
