UMBC’s Sarah Stellwagen is developing a spider glue.

Yup, inspired by Peter Parker's Spider-Man himself, this scientist is creating a web that can be used in an almost similar fashion.

Who is pumped? Imagine being able to be the world's first real Spider-Person?

All this info comes from a report from the UMBC website.


For quite some time now, scientists have been trying to find out how to create the same spider-web that Peter Parker uses.

But they're still unable to recreate it exactly.


They can't quite figure out how to replicate the exact webbing, but they've gotten extremely close!

It's been a difficult process.


“I’m super excited that I was able to finally figure out the puzzle, because it was just so hard,” Stellwagen said.

“Ultimately we learned a lot, and I am happy to put that out there for the next person who is trying to solve some ridiculous gene.”

Stellwagen also said that the use for the spider-web will be for practicality.


An example? Farmers could use it to protect their livestock from predators!

What do you think about his development?
