Craig Vierra Lab-5

Photos taken in Dr. Craig Vierra's laboratory. Dr. Vierra is considered one of the foremost experts on spider webs and is figuring out how to create synthetic spider web silk, which is stronger than steel. The silk can be used to improve tires, helmets, protective clothing, shoes and a multitude of other products. It's also environmentally friendly and can biodegrade over time.
