Spider goats? Heck yeah

Coma Niddy explains why we would need goats that would create spider silk: we need to obtain materials that offer better protection than kevlar and which can be used in various places. Spider silk is stronger than kevlar or steel and very flexible and this is why we need lots of it, but it turns out it is hard to educate those spiders to not eat each other if you put many in the same area.

So, scientists use goats that produce spider silk in their milk. It is not as good as spider silk, but at least we are on some track 😀 Go, spider goats, go!
