Nanobubble dynamics in the spider-spinning procedure is elucidated, and a theoretical model is established to show why spider drag-line silk protein assemblies have extraordinary strength and toughness. Suggested by the spider-spinning, a bubble electrospinning is investigated for mass production of nanofibers within diameters 20 nm. El Naschie's E-infinity theory is a universal theory for nanotechnology. It is concluded that smaller is the way to have excellent thermal and electric conductivity, in fact the smaller, the better.
