In a 2017 issue of Nature Chemical Biology, researchers announced that they may have found a reliable and inexpensive way to create large quantities of spider silk. You see, spider silk starts as a liquid protein solution, only turning into its super-strong final product after entering a narrow duct where the spider's acidic silk glands turn it into a solid fiber. Anna Rising and Jan Johansson at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala mimicked this process.
