Finally, let’s focus on this month’s most important advances in technology, starting with a key breakthrough in materials science.
Ounce for ounce, spider silk is stronger than steel. It also possesses other advanced material properties.
As described in the journal Nature Communications, MIT researchers have developed a systematic approach to research its structure, using computational modeling and mechanical analysis to enable 3D printing of synthetic spider webs.
Coupling multi-scale modeling with emerging micr.....
