'Making science-fiction a reality': Bulletproof human skin made from spider silk and goat milk developed by researchers

From | August 16th 2011

Researchers genetically engineered goats to produce milk which is packed with the same protein as silk spiders.
Once this is milked out it can be spun out and weaved into a material that is ten times stronger than steel.
The fabric can then be blended with human skin to make what the scientists hope will be tough enough to stop even a bullet.
