  1. I read about this in the New York Times and I was fascinated. I’m wondering if it’s worth the price of admission to the AMNH (not just the money, mind you…the teeming hoards of school children unloaded on buses!).

    The last time I was at the AMNH it was to see the giant squid, which was a bit disappointing in real life. It looked like a big white wet knitted hat that had been unraveled. I have higher hopes for this fabric, although the more I think about it the grosser it seems (not sure why, since spiders don’t gross me out, nor do silkworms).

    I hope they have some video of how they “harnessed” these spiders! It’s as interesting as the fabric!
