How silk is made.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Is this thread just for posting or are we allowed to convo about what we see here?

I had no idea they killed the worms inside the cocoon. I thought they just waited until they hatched to get the silk. Sad

That is just too fucking cool. Right out of Buck Rogers. Note that this costs more than reclaiming SRBs from the ocean after a Space Shuttle flight; that recovery process was break-even with just making new SRBs, but it made good publicity. They are talking cost of the new booster and ignoring the cost of the fuel, IMO.
