Stronger Than SteelRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
Stronger than steel, yet lighter than cotton
Found in a corner, forever forgotten
I bother so many, but marvel a few
You can't seem to make me
I'm a mystery to you.
HintI am used for protection
But also a weapon.
Spider silk is one of the most remarkable materials on Earth. Besides being five times stronger than steel, it is also extremely lightweight: a strand of spider silk long enough to circle the earth would weigh less than 16 ounces.
Despite years of study, researchers are still baffled by spider silk and have not been able to duplicate it.
