Ken Simons: web designer, editor, and archivist

I'm back -- and I brought tardigrades!


I won’t bore you with endless apologies for failing to keep this blog updated for more than two years … instead, I want to delight, educate, and entertain you with something that is apparently missing from the otherwise limitless Internet — a downloadable template for making your very own paper model of a tardigrade (hypsibius dujardini, more or less).

This squashed-flat, cut-and-fold template is based on Coma Niddy’s awesome tardigrade spaceship from the Water Bear Don’t Care SciTunes episode. Not liable for minor or massive inaccuracies. You can download the full-sized pattern (12×12cm) here.
