The wall-clinging secrets of geckos revealed

Abstract:
Have you ever wondered why geckos can stick to walls while we humans can’t? Are you surprised that thin spider webs are so sticky that flying insects suddenly find themselves stuck? Whatever your questions, the answers are at National Science Week 2005, the country’s largest science and technology exhibition, being held at Impact Arena Muang Thong Thani from now until Sunday. One highlight is the Nano Technology Pavilion, where nano-technology applications are presented to the public.
