“Some tablets have an anti-theft device. When the tablet is turned off they give off a really weak short range signal on a specific frequency. The signals are powered by an internal battery and are intended to last a very long time. The purpose is for times like this, so the tablet can be located.” _ Officer John Thomas from Spidersilk the novel

With all of the news from NASA about a new solar system discovery, it’s equally exciting to find out that spider silk from the recluse spider may be the material used to create space clothing as well as other equipment needed to make traveling to distant planets possible.
