  • 25 best suburbs to retire to. Aiken SC is high on my list. Fort Thomas, Kentucky, also makes an appearance.

  • Add graphene to spider silk to create the strongest known fiber.

    The results were basically a reverse of the Spiderman origin story. Instead of a human getting bitten by a radioactive spider and developing superpowers, the spiders were sprayed by humans, and got our amazing gift of…manipulating nano-materials? It might not seem that great, but the silk produced by the spiders is stronger than Kevlar. (The strength of limpet teeth, for the record, was ‘comparable’ to the high-tech silk. A head-to-head slugfest between the two is TBD.)

  • The Russian cargo spacecraft that was supposed to bring supplies to the International Space Station has crashed safely in the Pacific ocean.
