Porcupines may be adorable, but their quills are razor-sharp, designed to impale and next to impossible to remove. But it’s not all bad news. Researchers are designing new surgical staples that mimic the quill’s shape to better close wounds and promote healing.

This is another installment of the PBS Deep Look series; this installment is adapted from the “It’s OK to be Smart” series. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.   [Chuck Almdale]
