Materials science: Sticky business

Abstract:
But what happens to water droplets on a surface that has the potential sticking qualities of a gecko's foot but that is also extremely hydrophobic? M. Jin and colleagues produced such a superhydrophobic, adhesive surface by packing polystyrene nanotubes into an array at a density of 6 million per square millimetre.
