Gigantic spider's web discovered

Scientists have discovered a species of spider in Madagascar that spins the world's longest web, spanning an astounding 82 feet. In an amazing feat of engineering, the Darwin's bark spider builds its gigantic web across rivers, from one bank to the other, to catch insects flying over the water. It is not yet fully understood how the spiders construct their webs over such distances. More at BBC News.
