In Oxford, they found out that the super-abilities of a spider-man are not possible in reality


It seems that scientists seriously undertook a real assessment of the possibilities of Hollywood supermen. Following James Bond on the turn was a spider-man. The fantastic story of a spider bitten by a young man who, as a result of the mutation, acquired “spider” supernormal abilities, interested the researchers at Oxford University.

They analyzed the abilities of the movie hero and compared them with the capabilities of ordinary spiders. One of the first conclusions, made by Professor of Biology Fritz Vollrat: Peter Parker could not weave a web that can withstand his weight.

For this, in terms of thickness, it must be commensurate with the cable, otherwise the web will not cope with those giant loads that we see in the cinema. Especially at a time when Peter Parker stops with her help the racing metro cars.


According to the professor, in order for a typical spider to synthesize such a number of spider webs it is necessary to have very large glands and not less than a day to weave this web.

No less questions cause the ability of a movie hero to shoot woven web. From the point of view of science, a spider web shot from the wrists of a spider-man is a few centimeters thick, which is absolutely unrealistic. Spiders do not “shoot”.

In nature, the thickness of the web is measured in microns. In addition, in reality, spiders use it solely to fix their victim in limbo.

In summary, Professor Fritz Vollrat noted that spiderman is a product of a kind of mutation and an absolutely unrealistic character with a spinning system that does not occur anywhere in nature.
