Special | 6m 32s

Dr. Todd Blackledge is a biologist at the University of Akron, who specializes in spider silk. We spend part of the video outdoors with Dr. Blackledge, as he locates spider webs in the wild, then, we follow him back to the lab where he demonstrates how to extract spider silk from a live spider, and tests its strength.
