The Amazing Properties Of Spider Silk
2012-03-06 05:49:20

New research has revealed that spider silk carries amazing physical properties, according to a new paper published in the journal Advanced Materials. Xinwei Wang, who wanted to take a closer look at spider webs, ordered eight Nephila clavipes, commonly known as golden silk orbweavers. He put them to work eating crickets and spinning webs so their materials and habits could be studied. Wang, who is an associate profess of mechanical engineering at Iowa State University studies thermal...

This is the first entry in the BepiColombo Test Campaign Journal, a series of articles covering the main events during the integration and testing of the Structural and Thermal Models (STM) and the Proto-Flight Models (PFM) of the four major components that make up the BepiColombo composite spacecraft stack. The journal is expected to run until the completion of PFM testing in the fourth quarter of 2013; shortly after this, the BepiColombo Launch Campaign Journal will begin. The BepiColombo...


Word of the Day
attercop
  • A spider.
  • Figuratively, a peevish, testy, ill-natured person.
'Attercop' comes from the Old English 'atorcoppe,' where 'atter' means 'poison, venom' and‎ 'cop' means 'spider.' 'Coppa' is a derivative of 'cop,' top, summit, round head, or 'copp,' cup, vessel, which refers to 'the supposed venomous properties of spiders,' says the OED. 'Copp' is still found in the word 'cobweb.'
