In Spidersilk the novel, hyperspace plays a big role in the plot of the novel. In our own world, we’re not exactly clued up on the topic. However, last year, scientists revealed they are working on an electromagnetic (EM) propulsion drive. Although this wouldn’t exactly send us through hyperspace, it would help speed up our travel in space which is certainly a step towards hyperspace travel.

In Spidersilk the novel, multiple dimensions is a huge theme in the plot. In our own reality, many scientists follow the theory of multiple dimensions, while some still aren’t 100% sure. However, this week, scientists may have found gravitational waves, which is basically a ripple in time and space. Exciting? We could be hearing some major breakthroughs in the coming years.

The spiders in Spidersilk the novel use a substance called spider silk to help protect the main character, Mark, from intruders. In our own world, spider silk has been a hot topic lately. Not long ago, a group of scientists successfully produce spider silk that’s tougher than anything else we’ve made thus far. They sprayed the spiders with carbon nanotubes and graphene flakes, which strengthened the fibers. For more on this study, check out this link:

In Spidersilk the novel, the multiverse plays a huge role in the plot of the novel. In our own world, the multiverse is still a very abstract idea that more and more scientists are gaining interest in. Since the idea is relatively new to many people, it’s often hard to grasp the concept of it. Landscape artist, Charles Jencks, has taken it upon himself to create a work of art called the “The Crawick Multiverse”, which shows the concept of a multiverse for all to see. This landscape can be seen in Scotland or all over the internet.

“Smiling Jeff signed to Mark requesting if he checked to verify if he was in fact ‘real’. Mark laughed, “Very funny. Perhaps, I am not real? The question is what does it mean by real?” Garrick responds, “What isn’t real according to them? These strangers have an odd way of thinking so it may be anything.”_Spidersilk the novel
