Making Humans Bulletproof

A scientist is trying to make humans bulletproof. She genetically modified goats to give milk that had spidersilk protien, then she milks the goats and turns the milk into a spidersilk fiber mesh that she grows human skin cells on, making the skin incredibly strong - strong enough to be bulletproof!


There won't be many more updates here until Monday when I return from WorldCon, but I'll be posting notes from my panels when I can!
