Secret to tardigrades' toughness revealed by supercomputer simulation

I'm not sure if this article is accessible without a subscription to New Scientist, but if it is, it's an interesting read.

I suspect Nature will include an article on it in their briefings over the next day or two, in which case I will add a link.

Thanks for the article. The image at the top was worth the price of admission.
