Dry adhesive holds in extreme cold, strengthens in extreme heat

A new dry adhesive has been created that bonds in extreme temperatures—a quality that could make the product ideal for space exploration and beyond. The gecko-inspired adhesive loses no traction in temperatures as cold as liquid nitrogen or as hot as molten silver, and actually gets stickier as heat increases, the researchers report.
