The web is one of the most durable materials in the world.
The Japanese company Spiber announced the world's first jacket, created from a genetically modified web. Material for the park was synthesized by GMO bacteria.
This writes the Chronicle.info with reference to rambler.ru.
The web is one of the most durable materials in the world - it is 5 times stronger than steel and 3 times stronger than Kevlar, but it is lighter than carbon fiber. However, it is hardly possible for spiders to produce cobwebs on an industrial scale.
Scientists have found a solution and developed genetically modified bacteria that synthesize spider silk proteins no worse than insects.
GMO bacteria were grown on sugar isolated from agricultural waste. This approach is much more environmentally friendly than the production of nylon and polyester based on petroleum products.
To participate in the creation of a ski jacket based on this unique technology, the Japanese biotechnological company Siber invited specialists from The North Face brand. The park turned out to be very warm, breathable and waterproof. It is possible that such a jacket will be worn by astronauts exploring the moon. Astronomers have shown an avalanche on Mars
To demonstrate the unique technology, Spiber, together with The North Face Japan, created the Moon Parka ski jacket. It has a lot of advantages - the material breathes, does not let water through, and it is also very warm in this park. It is possible that a jacket from the GMO web will become part of the clothes of astronauts exploring the moon.
