For some time, scientists have been working with the concept of using spider silk to create new materials that are stronger, flexible and capable of transforming the world that we now. Since large quantities of silk were needed, the scientists used to work with larger spiders. However, now that the scientists have learned to recreate the silk for various uses, the experiments on the silk have expanded. It turns out that the silk of black widows, which tend to be smaller and far more dangerous, might be the best silk to use in the future and may even be the strongest silk on the planet.
