Animal based armor developed in the USA

54
According to "MIC“, The US military managed to synthesize an elastic substance based on Pacific Pacific myxine mucus. Biochemist Josh Kogot and engineer Ryan Kinser from the Naval Surface Warfare Science Center (NSWC, part of the US Navy) successfully synthesized myxin protein, through which these animals turn water into solid mucus.


Animal based armor developed in the USA


As the scientists say, the resulting material has a high elasticity and is ten times stronger than steel. “Myxin mucus is one of the most unique biomaterials known to science. The US Navy will be useful to be armed with a substance that can in a matter of seconds turn water into durable material that can protect ships or people from various dangers, ”said R. Kinser. From the words of D. Kogot, the threads of mucus mixin can be compared in strength with spider silk, and by mechanical qualities they are comparable with Kevlar.



The advantage of mucus myxine is its naturalness and renewability, if necessary, it can be replaced with synthetic materials created on the basis of petroleum products. “Synthetic slime myxine can be used for ballistic protection, fire fighting, ship bottom protection, protection for divers or even as a spray against sharks. The possibilities of this material are endless, our goal is to reproduce protective material for the military on its basis, ”said D. Kogot.

                Well, the stump is clear.
                Biochemistry in Russia stands in such a place in the world ....
                So for reference:
                Profits public US biotechnology companies from 1998 to 2007 year increased from xnumx to 65 billion US dollars, research and development costs - with 10 up to 26 billion US dollars.

                The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the largest single agency funding biotechnology research in the United States. Between 2000 and 2008, the NIH annual budget increased from 18 to 29 billion.
                by 2010, according to more accurate estimates, this figure exceeded 100 billion dollars. By 2015, the global volume (at 70% of everything American) of the biotechnology market amounted to over 280 billion dollars and already nowover 12% of sales in the chemical market.

                By 2014, North America, Europe, Japan, and Latin America
                controlled 85% of this market. Moreover, according to estimates by IMS Health,
                North America received 210 billion dollars, Europe - 131, Japan - 54,
                Latin America - 39, Southeast Asia (including China) - 30,
                Eastern Europe - 19, Middle East - 17, Africa - 9, India - 11,
                Australia - 15, CIS - 13 billion dollars
                Threat in 2025 expect income 2 trillion $

                The budget of Russia (ALL) in 2007
                Revenue 7, 781 trillion rubles
                Consumption 5, 987 trillion rubles



                The Russian market for biotechnology products and the production of biopharmaceuticals (proteins, enzymes, antibodies) is the largest in terms of money
                expression. Its volume is, according to expert estimates, from 60 to 90 billion.
                rub. per year, but demand is satisfied mainly through imports.
                According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, only about 5% of biotechnological
                substances used in the manufacture of final dosage forms,
                are domestic.



                and the centers for the study of biotechnology, we have the same in abundance

            There are no developments. This "discovery", under a hundred years. The announced surnames probably patented another doll and are trying to transfer the payment of patent support to the Navy. I am sure that we will never hear again about "mucus, ten times stronger than steel." America is a country of great discoveries and bright engineering, but for every talent there are a million crooks in search of fame, money, or to satisfy the hunger of schizophrenia. This "biochemist" and "engineer", well, certainly not from talents.

      What bothers you so much?
      What spider weaves its threads from steel?
      Maybe it will be interesting to you, well, and informative.
      The web is so strong and resilient that with its thickness it is able to stop a flying bee or fly. And if you imagine that it was possible to increase the diameter of the web even to the thickness of a pencil, such a thread could stop a flying plane. This is confirmed by calculations. The strength of the material is known to be measured in units called dernier (1 dernier = 1 g per 9000 m). By measuring the strength of the web, scientists have found that it is 5 to 8 dernier. Calculations show: in order for the web to collapse under the weight of its weight, it must be between 45 and 72 kilometers in length. For comparison, the strength of steel is only 2,5 -3 dernier.

      If you gird the globe around the equator line with a cobweb, then the weight of such a web will be only 300 grams. In addition, the web is very elastic, it can stretch one third of its length .. The spider’s thread, before breaking, can be stretched by 30-40 percent of its length, and nylon, the most durable man-made material, can only be stretched to the maximum 20 per cent.

              1. In fact. Nylon, which is essentially an analogue of the Silk thread, which again produces an insect.
              Like many synthetic fibers, this material was invented by the chemist Wallace Carothers, who worked at Dupont Chemical in 1935. In 1938, the company patented the name "nylon" to introduce a new substance to consumers.

              The USSR literally hunted for the technology of its production.
              2. What they could not synthesize (like threads similar to the web) a hundred and ten years ago, with existing and developing new technologies .. who knows what they will do in five years?
              The display that can be rolled into a tube - 30 years ago was space fiction.

                the fact is:
                Sensing something was amiss, the myxinum secretes mucus from the skin, simultaneously folding into a knot. With this knot, she rests on the offender and, moving him along the body, abundantly smeared with mucus, breaks free.

        About five years ago, in one of the latest television news broadcasts, a teleportation was shown from the Port-1 satellite about the final stage of the liquidation of the discovered stocks of some infernal substance, code-named "Mary Auntie", created in the once-existing top-secret laboratory for naval research HRS. From the berths of “Port-1”, the decrepit tanker Amalia set off on an irrevocable flight towards the Sun. With great precautions, under the escort of the ships-barriers of VDOO. Amalia's holds and tanks were packed with containers similar to autoclaves. Two hundred container autoclaves with the letters ZTM on the shiny yellow sides were enough to turn all the water of such reservoirs as the Gulf of Mexico or the Black Sea into jelly. A full load of Amalia would have been enough for the Atlantic Ocean ... And recently, with even greater caution, some other deadly dirty trick called “Uncle John’s tobacco” was thrown into the unrequited depths of the Sun. They dropped along with the entire squadron of transport ships that took part in this, they say, complex operation.

        industrial production is not easy because of the high cost.
        Such materials will first go to medicine: prosthetics, organ replacement,
        artificial joints, muscles - instead of metals and plastics.
        Then all sorts of films and inserts will be built in for the military.
