This is an enjoyable diversion: the University of Utah’s Genetics Dept has a groovy slider-thingy to let you zoom in and out of a diagram showing the relative sizes between a coffee bean and a Carbon atom.
Special mentions go to paramecium, yeast, E. coli, tRNA and glucose.
Have fun fiddling with that one.
Now that is old.
According to the scientists studying this find – a piece of fossilised tree sap containing the spider and its web – the structure and composition of the web is very close to the ones of modern spiders.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
